AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Texas voters ratified all seven proposed amendments to the state Constitution on Wednesday, Nov. 8.
No statewide offices were up for grabs on Tuesday’s ballot, and congressional and legislative elections do not come until 2018.
The seven amendments range from issues related to property tax exemptions for disabled veterans to reducing restrictions on Texans borrowing against equity in their homes.
Proposition 7 lets banks and credit unions offer raffles and other prizes to people opening savings accounts.
Records show the Texas Legislature has proposed 673 constitutional amendments, with 491 approved by voters, 179 defeated, and three failing to make the ballot for “reasons that are historically obscure.” That’s according to a report by the Texas Legislative Council.
