New Yorkers will have the chance to vote on three statewide ballot measures on Tuesday.
New York state law requires that the chance to hold a constitutional convention appears on the ballot at least once every two decades.
If voters approve Proposal 1 on Tuesday, a constitutional convention would begin in 2019. Advocates say it provides the chance to make much needed improvements, including ethics reforms. Critics are wary of special interests influencing a constitutional convention and the potential removal of environmental protections.
Proposal 2 would allow judges to revoke state pensions from corrupt public officials.
Proposal 3 would create a 250-acre land bank to provide forest preserve land for local projects.
