PA Constitutional Ballot Questions
In addition to local, municipal, and judicial elections on the ballot, Pennsylvania voters can expect four ballot questions — three of which have the potential to amend the state constitution.
The three proposed constitutional amendments will determine the future of Disaster Emergency Declarations, a Governor’s disaster declaration power and denial of equal rights based on race or ethnicity.
The fourth ballot question is a budget referendum that will determine if Pa. voters approve of making municipal fire companies with paid personnel and EMS companies eligible for loans, ultimately expanding the state’s loan applicant qualifications.
