I -- Megan and I. An amateur sports show going to be examining -- BO a whole bunch of questions and I've been trying to hand drums bass like a cult township a couple of times the secretary of state. Answering your your. Voting questions. Go to their web site download that apt to. To pull up your App Store. When your on your iPhone your Droid and just search. Put in Louisiana as the secretary of state a ticket to their -- vote app in download that and votes in the time it's very very handy. As for some and the rest of these questions provisional ballots at such and what difference does not get up there with the best like. World to talk about what is number two on your ballot. For you. Lots of things that the president of course. But what's number two for you is that is that the tolls. Which is limited to Jefferson Orleans and lack -- says is that the told policies he sees the is that the number of amendments that we got up there is that term limits for school board members is that via -- him -- -- states the -- the -- that -- now Obama. At march. Congressional seats one what is the number two most important thing on the ballot for you audit people sent me information estimate that about the second. Amendment on the east nine amendments that we got it you go to our website at WW back -- them go really quick over here. But if you go to our website at WW dot com and click in the forward says election twelve. It'll take you to a site there has got all kinds of links for bunch of different stuff including secretary of state. And also the public affairs research council they're guide to the constitutional amendment. They're all in there and they don't allow those guys like Crosby. Day don't they don't tell you which way to vote they just say here's the deal. This is the way it is now this with an -- when you vote yes that's what happens when you vote. All nine MM. And the one that's that's come up the most of course has been number two. Which is in line with the second MM OK but another very used to really import amendments on there besides that one. The first one is the Medicaid trust fund for the elderly. If you vote for this you would prohibit the legislature or the governor from taking money from the Medicaid trust fund for the only to help balance the state operating budget. If you vote against that it's gonna leave it alone leave the possibility that the money to be taken from the -- it never has been. And -- discussions with the with Robert -- I don't think they ever have done that but this would this would guarantee. That they're not gonna. Medicaid trust fund for the elderly vote for that would prohibit them ever being able to take the money out of that for the journal on okay. Second Amendment record strict scrutiny standard for gun laws this is the limit number two on the ballot. A vote for it would require that any laws restricting the right to keep and bear arms be subject to the highest level of judicial review. Known as strict scrutiny also. The amendment would say that the right to keep and bear -- the fundamental one in Louisiana it would delete a line in the constitution. That says the right to bear keep and bear arms shall not prevent the passage of laws to prohibit the carrying a concealed weapons. There are I know I know Adam. Leon tennis aero is against this amendment. Take it -- leave it at that. But after Katrina a lot of people who were doing enough and had their guns taken away from you know where is where is the Second Amendment protects an event. So I think anybody who saw any of those videos might want to reconsider vote for this one. And go to any more loss to the and the molecular Selznick criminals don't keep legally carry weapons are such a small percentage of them do. But that's that's what's in there okay. Third -- grow fast. Earlier notice of public retirement system bills if you vote for this the bill would require affecting the State's public retirement system be filed a month earlier than the other types of legalization. Submitted prior to legislative session. Would also double the public notice period for pre filed retirement bill so basically if they're gonna mess with your retirement. They got a filed a bill that much earlier and put out more notices double the noticed that they're gonna introduce legislation about that. So if you don't do that means the bills affecting public retirement continue to be subject to the same pre filing period so if you more concerned about. The legislature being able to affect your retirement system. You want to know about it as far in advance as possible that's what this amendment if you don't think their governments would depend -- bother vote for. Property Texas is number four property tax exemption for spouses of certain disabled veterans. A vote for this would allow the spouse of a deceased veteran who had a 100% service connected disability rating to claiming higher homestead exemption. Even if the exemption was not in effect at the time the veteran died. A vote against this would mean the spouse could not claim the higher exemption. In the veteran -- before took effect I don't know frankly how many people this effects. But it's things -- pretty popular one amongst the veterans. Here's number five real fast and just trying to knock these out. I got a bunch of calls and texts and wanna get to all of them but it's been so many calls about this. You know this is this is how easy it is though to go to this website go to our website WW dot com. Click on the par guide to the point to a constitutional -- to reach -- up you can also print out the very first page. Which has enlisted and you can click yes and no and bring that with you when there. Okay here's number five. Forfeiture republic retirement benefits for convicted public service this is the one this is one that's -- -- a lot of notes. If you vote for this amendment it would allow the courts to include forfeiture. Of a portion of public retirement benefits. As a part of a sentence. For a public service convicted. For public servant convicted of a felony related to his or her office so somebody. In office and -- related to their office is convicted of felony. -- they would lose a portion of their money that the retirement money that the public funds. And if you vote against that it leaves them alone which means a public servant convicted of felony. Related to his or her office will be allowed to keep whatever public retirement benefits they've -- Except for court order restitution in such so if they convicted of a felony. And you vote for this than they're gonna lose. Public. Funding of their a chunk of it maybe not all maybe all. But it would be they would be able to look at that incidents and property tax exemption authority from Liberia number six a vote for this one on New Iberia to grant city property tax exemptions to any property owner. And extended city after January 12013. If your friend. I mean. I know Iberia -- It's New Iberia promise the -- the losses that they have to pass this amendment read the amendment vote. As you see fit seven membership of certain state boards and commissions. A vote for this amendment would adjust. The membership selection process for constitutionally created boards and commissions that have members selected on the State's congressional districts. Basically this wouldn't okay it would leave it alone. They would change the number of boards and commissions based on the changing of the districts some other wars we lost a seat. In the and we lost a seat in congress. Because we lost population we'd actually lose but other places grew faster air -- they got the seat so we lost our house district. Okay that's -- boom standing and and Landry are battling it out for Matt. What this would do their boards and commissions and instead of them -- a pass a law. -- reduce or increase or whatever the boards and commissions it would be tied to the number. Both of -- Of congressional districts so they would go down automatically if we go down if they come up they would come. There would be more tied to that instead of passing individual legislation. Brawl that's up across the board number eight property tax exemption for non manufacturing businesses. A vote for this would allow the state board of commerce and industry. To grant local property taxes and and contracts to a targeted group. A non manufacturing businesses and -- that choose to participate in the program. A vote against -- is would mean these targeted non manufacturing business and would continue to play continue to be ineligible for property tax exemptions. So basically the -- -- -- to decide whether or not they're eligible for this but it has to pass constitutional. Muster first okay so if you vote for this the board the state board of commerce and industry. Would grant local property tax exemption contracts to a targeted group. All non manufacturing businesses and parishes. That choose to participate in the program so I go if you vote -- that in the parish itself still has the size where they go to last one number nine. Crime prevention and security districts. A vote for this would increase the number of times that bills to create crime prevention and security district must be advertised. And required in the notices on the intense. State whether a partial fee would be imposed and collected whether the fee could be imposed or increased without an election. And what the maximum amount of the fee would be. Basically if you wanna vote yourself an extra tax spoke for a crime district you -- declare your neighborhood crime district and -- yourself an extra tax. This constitutional amendment. It increases the number of times that bills to create -- -- convention and security district must be ever present you basically get more information about. That's what a ball bounces and whether or not they would be able to impose a field on you so you would be able to know. I had a time what's going on. OK so -- -- nine amendments but again -- on our website ago. WW dot com you can link to the PIR website or you can download it right there off our website.

Well actually happened -- -- at the same problem with a couple other people that match and I went in my area. Voting locations. And they told me today and information about my voter IT and I had. Years ago. Change monitor -- -- -- world. Ends did that that the country and apparently none of this was that a proper. What date it was they call a couple of numbers they called form.

To sign the deal about the current view and make -- -- portion of that format that the number. Associated with your pal and call in seven days after the election here by that your vote was actually count the election. If people are told that they vote the problem. If you collect incorrectly register you can only vote in the presidential race can't in any of the other issues so. Only problem by at least it's open approach. Who has yet to do not -- that patsy again you know I. I understand the backing behind the motor voter law and all the rest of the stop but the DMV people do driver's licenses are you know. We aren't I now. I -- I mean honestly didn't surprise you that it's been happening here with the DMV I mean that's last -- not -- well. I went to that's why I went to registrar you know I wanna vote that's their job. You know if our driver's license I go to the driver's license about wanna get you know I -- I try to go to the individual office and and and unfortunately -- mean. Not not to not to bad mouth them but that's not they're -- they're gig is driver's licenses go right ready to.

Is the meant yeah the year Hewitt talked about was number two what's second bottom presidential -- -- me like that -- not -- hoping it right. Yeah I -- it at all not what do you think about all those amendments I mean every time. Ever. We have 200. I think they've been 260. Some odd. Proposed amendments. And a 160 some have passed and this will be nine -- will be like over -- 170. Amendments to our constitution was written in 1972 -- 30. Lowly Louisiana politicians -- amendment to change our constitution scared that a lot of -- you know you gotta you gotta read extremely careful what others. Sometimes and think you're looking for something you're voting against it when you vote against something you can get it going for it yet it's that the -- and put on is to feature key is. Can't talk too complicated needs to be. Much simpler but they don't want that the president people don't know what they'll. Well that's why I I. I always have the head I used to Jim -- come on when he was the head of the public affairs research council now Robert Scott is. I always have them Garland even had a -- just a couple of days -- -- two weeks ago. -- -- animal on a couple of days ago those guys don't pick a side. And they'd lay it out for you in complicated terms but they also laid out for you and it's very simple term which -- read. And when I read -- nine amendments and about and about ten or eleven minutes out loud. Yeah Expedia in part that match was brought to -- -- -- Yeah but it's been you know I mean -- -- there's lots of people out there whom who are really and truthfully. Are nonpartisan they are strictly watchdogs. Whoever's in power they watch him. And they come out lay it out four in layman's terms and and those guys are one of amendments. A lot of vote is that a non partisan. Yeah mother a lot more we -- You know it it. Are things it's things like more more people are or are identifying themselves as independents and yet there's still the popularity. Out there is is you know the vitriol against priests. -- action. It it's for me myself I'm I'm a registered in the tendon and I vote on the individual race I don't you know -- Republican or democratic. You know lever -- the tickets via I don't -- ticket I make my own decisions on things.
