Proposed Constitutional Amendments and Judge's for 2020 election GET OUT AND VOTE! This is not an official Trump club stand just one members thoughts.
i No. 1 Constitutional Amendment, Article VI, Section 2 Citizenship Requirement to Vote in Florida Elections This amendment provides that only United States Citizens who are at least eighteen years of age, a permanent resident of Florida, and registered to vote, as provided by law, shall be qualified to vote in a Florida election. Because the proposed amendment is not expected to result in any changes to the voter registration process in Florida, it will have no impact on state or local government costs or revenue. Further, it will have no effect on the state’s economy. VOTE YES on 1 . in my opinion you should be a US Citizen and Permanent resident Citizen of the State that you are to vote in.
No. 2 Constitutional Amendment, Article X, Section 24 Raising Florida’s Minimum Wage Raises minimum wage to $10.00 per hour effective September 30th, 2021. Each September 30th thereafter, minimum wage shall increase by $1.00 per hour until the minimum wage reaches $15.00 per hour on September 30th, 2026. From that point forward, future minimum wage increases shall revert to being adjusted annually for inflation starting September 30th, 2027. State and local government costs will increase to comply with the new minimum wage levels. Additional annual wage costs will be approximately $16 million in 2022, increasing to about $540 million in 2027 and thereafter. Government actions to mitigate these costs are unlikely to produce material savings. Other government costs and revenue impacts, both positive and negative, are not quantifiable. THIS PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT IS ESTIMATED TO HAVE A NET NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THE STATE BUDGET. THIS IMPACT MAY RESULT IN HIGHER TAXES OR A LOSS OF GOVERNMENT SERVICES IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN A BALANCED STATE BUDGET AS REQUIRED BY THE CONSTITUTION. VOTE NO on 2. In my opinion the minimum wage is for people just entering the work force such as high school kids looking at jobs to help pay for college and get work experience not for someone looking to spend a lifetime working for minimum Wage. At a fast food place, also a company will have to raise wages if they wish to keep the best workers. No. 3 Constitutional Amendment, Article VI, Section 5 All Voters Vote in Primary Elections for State Legislature, Governor, and Cabinet Allows all registered voters to vote in primaries for state legislature, governor, and cabinet regardless of political party affiliation. All candidates for an office, including party nominated candidates, appear on the same primary ballot. Two highest vote getters advance to general election. If only two candidates qualify, no primary is held and winner is determined in general election. Candidate’s party affiliation may appear on ballot as provided by law. Effective January 1, 2024. It is probable that the proposed amendment will result in additional local government costs to conduct elections in Florida. The Financial Impact Estimating Conference projects that the combined costs across counties will range from $5.2 million to $5.8 million for each of the first three election cycles occurring in even-numbered years after the amendment’s effective date, with the costs for each of the intervening years dropping to less than $450,000. With respect to state costs for oversight, the additional costs for administering elections are expected to be minimal. Further, there are no revenues linked to voting in Florida. Since there is no impact on state costs or revenues, there will be no impact on the state’s budget. While the proposed amendment will result in an increase in local expenditures, this change is expected to be below the threshold that would produce a statewide economic impact. VOTE NO on3. Why? Because we have a two party system even though you can register as whatever, when it comes to voting in the primaries you can change your registration and vote. In a closed primary system it forces voters to affiliate with a political party before they can vote in a primary election. Therefore, independent and non-affiliated voters are generally forced to affiliate with either the Republican or Democratic Party to cast their vote in a primary election. But in the general you can vote for anyone on theballot. " From Find Law " If open primaries provide more voters with a greater amount of choices, why do some states have closed primaries? Proponents of closed primaries say that it strengthens a party's ability to nominate a candidate of their party's choosing when outsiders are not allowed to participate. Another concern is that open primaries allow members from opposing parties to vote across party lines. They can attempt to elect a candidate the opposition party is more likely to beat in a general election. This process is known as "raiding" and is rare, as most voters want to vote for their party instead of against it."

No. 4 Constitutional Amendment, Article XI, Sections 5 and 7 Voter Approval of Constitutional Amendments Requires all proposed amendments or revisions to the state constitution to be approved by the voters in two elections, instead of one, in order to take effect. The proposal applies the current thresholds for passage to each of the two elections. It is probable that the proposed amendment will result in additional state and local government costs to conduct elections in Florida. Overall, these costs will vary from election cycle to election cycle depending on the unique circumstances of each ballot and cannot be estimated at this time. The key factors determining cost include the number of amendments appearing for the second time on each ballot and the length of those amendments. Since the maximum state cost is likely less than $1 million per cycle but the impact cannot be discretely quantified, the change to the state’s budget is unknown. Similarly, the economic impact cannot be modelled, although the spending increase is expected to be below the threshold that would produce a statewide economic impact. Because there are no revenues linked to voting in Florida, there will be no impact on government taxes or fees. THE FINANCIAL IMPACT OF THIS AMENDMENT CANNOT BE DETERMINED DUE TO AMBIGUITIES AND UNCERTAINTIES SURROUNDING THE AMENDMENT’S IMPACT.
VOTE YES on 4. Why because you are changing our State Constitution and it should not be done without thought and it gives the voter a chance to think about what they are voting for.
No. 5 Constitutional Amendment, Article VII, Section 4 and Article XII Limitations on Homestead Property Tax Assessments; increased portability period to transfer accrued benefit Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution, effective January 1, 2021, to increase, from 2 years to 3 years, the period of time during which accrued Save-Our-Homes benefits may be transferred from a prior homestead to a new homestead. VOTE NO on 5. Why there's no reason to extend the time.
No. 6 Constitutional Amendment, Article VII, Section 6 and Article XII Ad Valorem Tax Discount for Spouses of Certain Deceased Veterans Who Had Permanent, Combat-Related Disabilities Provides that the homestead property tax discount for certain veterans with permanent combat-related disabilities carries over to such veteran’s surviving spouse who holds legal or beneficial title to, and who permanently resides on, the homestead property, until he or she remarries or sells or otherwise disposes of the property. The discount may be transferred to a new homestead property of the surviving spouse under certain conditions. The amendment takes effect January 1, 2021. VOTE YES on 6.
