Summary


    The proposed amendment to the Constitution would guarantee a right to vote by secret ballot to prevent others from knowing how a person voted. This right would apply to elections of public officers, adoption of initiated or referred measures, and elections to designate or authorize employee representation, such as elections concerning unions.

    A vote "Yes" is for guaranteeing a right to vote by secret ballot.

    A vote "No" is against the constitutional amendment.
