Nov. 7 Ballot Order of Proposed Texas Constitutional Amendments Set

Deputy Secretary of State Joe Esparza has drawn up the ballot order of the 14 proposed constitutional amendments that voters will decide on Nov. 7.

This month’s drawing featured the most proposed constitutional amendments since 2007 when voters decided on 17 measures on two election dates. The year with the highest number of measures was 1987 when 25 proposals were on the ballot.

None of this year’s proposed constitutional amendments is deemed controversial by veteran Capitol watchers but Proposition 4, a measure addressing Texas’ astronomical property taxes, will garner a good deal of interest.

To make the constitutional amendment ballot, measures must receive two-thirds approval by the Texas House of Representatives and the Texas Senate. The Governor’s approval is not required under the state constitution.

It is possible that other constitutional amendments may be considered by the state legislature when it meets again this fall, but due to that special session’s timing, these would not be on the November ballot if adopted.
