From Texas Standard:

The longest state constitution in the nation is about to get longer. Texan voters passed all seven proposed amendments to the constitution.

One amendment aims to fix a problem most all Texans are familiar with: transportation. The state's growing population might be good for the economy, but hasn't done the roadways many favors.

North Texas school districts have a pretty big stake in Tuesday's election -- there are several bond proposals for voters to consider. Voters will also decide whether to amend the Texas Constitution -- there are seven proposed amendments ranging from taxes to highways.  


It doesn't have the glitz and glamour of a midterm or presidential election, but this election still has some weighty issues on the ballot. Along with seven state constitutional amendments, some North Texas school districts also have bond proposals for voters to consider. 


Seven propositions to amend the Texas Constitution are on the ballot this election. Proposition 7 would increase funding for roads by about $2.5 billion.

It’s not as flashy as midterm or presidential elections, but early voting has begun for another kind of election. On Nov. 3, Texas voters will consider whether to add another seven amendments to the state constitution.
