Did you remember that today is election day? It’s getting less attention this year because it’s not a presidential election, but there are some important issues on the ballot nonetheless. Don’t forget to vote!

Here’s an overview of the constitutional amendments you’re deciding on today. The first proposal would mean the surviving spouse of a member of the United States armed services who is killed in action will be exempt from ad valorem taxation of all or part of the market value of their residence homestead, as long as the surviving spouse does not remarry.

Another amendment, Proposition number 5, would amend the definition of “reverse mortgage” to authorize reverse mortgage loans when buying a homestead property.

There are nine constitutional amendments on the ballot all together, and the polls are open today from 7 to 7. Go get your sticker!
