Statewide Public Questions Analyses

As part of an effort to encourage informed participation, the League of Women Voters of New Jersey Education Fund has posted analyses of the two statewide public questions that will appear on the November 5, 2013 ballot.

For each question, the League provides that question and interpretative statement as they will appear on the ballot, as well as background information and balanced reasons voters might wish to vote yes or vote no. The League has not taken a position on either question. Use the links below to read the full analysis of each question.

Public Question #1 – Constitutional Amendment to Permit Money from Existing Games of Chance to Support Veterans’ Organizations

Public Question #2 – Constitutional Amendment to Set a State Minimum Wage with Annual Cost of Living Increases

“This information gives voters a fighting chance once they are in the voting booth. Often ballot questions are complicated and voters appreciate the opportunity to weigh the pros and cons before making a decision,” said Kerry Butch, Executive Director of the League of Women Voters of New Jersey. “Using our nonpartisan informational tools, voters can easily examine the public questions and cast an informed vote.”
