Tuesday, November 7th
Ballot Question No. 1:
Shall there be a convention to revise the constitution and amend the same?
 
Residents in November will vote on a statewide referendum to hold a convention to make changes to the New York State Constitution. The state constitution mandates that every 20 years voters get the opportunity to cast ballots on holding a convention. “If the public votes for a convention it’s because the public wants change,” said Evan Davis, manager of the Committee for a Constitutional Convention. For example, Davis said convention delegates could create a commission to sanction lawmakers for official misconduct; more fairly disburse state education funds; and prevent judges from being chosen by political party bosses. State lawmakers and [public] labor unions all oppose a convention. This is quite an interesting and high impact subject that mostly no one knows much about. 
 
Going forward, your Coram Civic will be providing their members with as much background info as we can in an effort to assist you with making an informed decision on the November ballot. 
 


In 1997, 40.3% of the people who actually went to the polls to vote DID NOT CAST A VOTE either yea or nay on the Ballot Question No. 1: Shall there be a convention to revise the constitution and amend the same? The reason why is simply that the majority of folks had absolutely no idea what the question even referred to! Since this question is only put before the NYS electorate every 20 years (locusts come around more often!), we feel an obligation to our membership to provide you with as much info as possible in order for you to make an informed choice on November 7th! 
 
Going forward, we shall do just that. Keep visiting our site for up-to-date info as it becomes available on the subject of CON-CON; the NYS Constitutional Convention. Special interest groups will be spending untold dollars marketing their positions on this question prior to the ballot. We will make every effort to remain as bi-partisan as possible in providing you with the factual info.
