New Yorkers will have the opportunity Tuesday to vote on five amendments to the state's constitution.
The first proposal would freeze the number of State Senate seats at 63 while making sure each district is equal in population while a second proposal would put the right to clean air and water in the constitution. Also on the ballot is a proposal to eliminate the requirement that voters need to be registered for an election at least 10 days in advance. There's also a proposal that would allow any eligible voter to request an absentee ballot no questions asked. The final proposal only affects New York City and would allow the claims limit of the New York City Civil Court to increase from $ 25-thousand to $ 50-thousand.
