The state constitution grants the right to vote to U.S. citizens who meet certain requirements. This amendment does not change those requirements.
If a majority of voters vote "yes" for Amendment 1, the state constitution will grant the right to vote to "only" those U.S. citizens who meet the requirements.
If a majority of voters vote "no" for Amendment 1, the state constitution will continue to grant the right to vote to "every" U.S. citizen who meets the requirements.
There is no cost for Amendment 1.
The Constitutional authority for passage of Amendment 1 is set forth in accordance with Sections 284, 285, and 287 of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901. These sections outline the method a constitutional amendment may be put to the people of the State for a vote.
