On New York's ballot next month will be six referendums to change the state constitution. The most talked about proposition asks voters if they want Las Vegas-style gambling. Several propositions delve into the minutia of government operations: giving war veterans additional access to government employment, helping local governments borrow money for sewer construction, and also allowing the state to make some land trades. The last referendum asks voters when judges should be forced to retire.
A question on the November ballot will ask New Yorkers if they support an expansion of casino gambling in the state. A new poll finds the language in that ballot question is written in a way that influences voters to vote yes.
