Familiar Battles Appear on Voter’s Ballots in the Form of Proposed Constitutional Amendments

National groups, as well as local ones, are campaigning for and against two of the four amendments to the Alabama Constitution that will be voted on in the Nov. 6 general election.

The proposed Amendment 2 has pitted pro-choice against pro-life advocates. It says that the state recognizes and supports the sanctity of unborn children.

Another amendment would allow the display of the Ten Commandments in public places, including schools, with certain restrictions.
Other amendments would change the way vacancies in the Alabama Legislature are filled, requiring more of them be filled by the voters rather than through appointment, and keep the composition of the University of Alabama board of trustees as it is if the state is redistricted after the 2020 Census.
