Full Text of Constitutional Amendment

To: County Clerks
From: Keith Ingram, Director of Elections
Date: August 28, 2014
RE: Full Text of Constitutional Amendment

Enclosed (PDF) is the full text, with Spanish translations of the proposed constitutional amendment to be voted on November 4, 2014.

Article XVII, Section 1, Texas Constitution requires the County Clerk to post the full text of the proposed amendment in a public place in the courthouse at least 30 days prior to the November 4, 2014 constitutional  amendment election, which is Sunday, October 5, 2014.

You may post the enclosed notice any time after you receive this, but no later than October 5, 2014.

Since this is a constitutional  requirement, the responsibility  to post this notice is not shifted to the Elections Administrator in counties that have an Election Administrator nor is the deadline extended.

If you have any questions concerning the enclosed (PDF) materials or need any assistance, please feel free to contact the Elections Division toll-free at 1-800-252-2216.
