Local Constitutional Amendments, Acts, and Referendums

Blount County

"Do you favor the formation of a district to be known as the Mt. High Fire and Emergency Medical Services District and the collection of mandatory annual dues of $120.00 to be assessed annually on each residence, business, and church in the boundaries of the district?"

Calhoun County

On the ballot: PROPOSED LOCAL AMENDMENT NUMBER ONE (1) Relating to Calhoun County, proposing a local amendment to Amendment 508 of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, authorizing the operation of bingo games for prizes or money in the county; and to prohibit any bingo permittee or licensee from operating bingo near a residential area. (Proposed by Act 2017-81)

What it means: If passed, the amendment would ban bingo halls from operating within 3,000 feet of any residence.

When the ballot measure says "authorizing the operation of bingo games for prizes or money in the county" it means that bingo games are already legal according to Amendment 508 of the Alabama Constitution. The wording of the ballot measure makes it seem like voting yes would authorize bingo games in Calhoun County. However, they are already legal according to Amendment 508. This ballot measure will add the additional regulation of not allowing bingo games from operating within 3,000 feet of any residence.

On the ballot: PROPOSED AMENDMENT NUMBER TWO (2) Relating to Calhoun County, proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to provide that any territory in Calhoun County outside of the corporate limits of a municipality would not be subject to the police jurisdiction or planning jurisdiction of the municipality if the municipality is not located entirely in the county and to provide an exception for the City of Oxford. (Proposed by Act 2018-17)

What it means: If passed, the amendment would restrict cities that straddle the county (Southside, Glencoe, maybe Piedmont) from being able to exercise police jurisdiction within the county. Only cities that lie entirely within Calhoun County would have police jurisdiction in the county.

Chambers County

"SUNDAY SALES. Do you favor the legal sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages in Chambers County outside the corporate limits of the City of Valley and the City of Lanett on Sunday after 12:00 p.m.?" - NO

Chilton County

"Relating to Chilton County; proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, for those areas of Chilton County outside the corporate limits of any municipality, to authorize the Legislature to establish a procedure by which a dog can be declared dangerous and to provide for a penalty. (Proposed by Act 2018-184)" - YES

Clay County

"PROPOSED LOCAL AMENDMENT NUMBER ONE (1) Relating to Clay County, proposing an amendment to Amendment 671 to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, now appearing as Section 4, Local Amendments, Clay County, Official Recompilation of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended, to prohibit the Sheriff of Clay County from participating in the supernumerary program of the county and to allow the sheriff to elect to participate in the Employees' Retirement System. (Proposed by Act 2018-37)"

"PROPOSED LOCAL AMENDMENT NUMBER TWO (2) Relating to Clay County, proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, prohibiting the removal of the state courts from the historical Clay County Courthouse. (Proposed by Act 2018-91)"

Cleburne County Local Act

"Whether the powers authorized under the Alabama Limited Self Governance Act shall be effective in Cleburne County?" - NO

The name of the Alabama Limited Self Governance act is misleading since it really means removing the safeguards of the Alabama Constitution on counties from passing unnecessary regulations and increasing the size of the county government. A NO vote is a vote for Limited Government and property rights.

Cullman County

"PROPOSED LOCAL AMENDMENT NUMBER ONE (1) Relating to Cullman County, proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to provide that effective beginning the next term of office of the sheriff, all allowances or amounts received by the sheriff for feeding prisoners would be deposited in a special account and used for feeding prisoners in the county jail and any excess in the fund would be authorized to be used for law enforcement purposes by the sheriff and to provide that, at that time, the annual salary of the Sheriff of Cullman County would be equal to the annual salary of the Judge of Probate of Cullman County. (Proposed by Act 2018-409)" - YES

Dale County

"Do you favor the adoption of Act 239, of the 2018 regular Session of the Alabama Legislature?"

Although “emergency medical services” is not in the verbiage, approval of Act 239 will allow a $5 tag transaction fee earmarked to fund emergency medical services in Dale County.

A “yes” vote will mean the assessment of a $5 fee for each motor vehicle—except trailer tags—issued or renewed in Dale County beginning Jan. 1, 2019. The fee will not apply to tag transfers and replacement tag transactions.

Three percent of the proceeds from the fees collected will be retained by the Dale County Revenue Commissioner’s office to cover administrative costs and the remainder given to the Dale County Commission to be distributed to municipalities and emergency medical service organizations for EMS services, according to the bill.

For more information: Tag tax, alcohol sales to be decided in Dale County Tuesday.

Sunday Alcohol Sales

"Do you favor the legal sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages for on-premises and off-premises consumption within Dale County on Sunday after 1:00 P.M. as provided in Act 245 of the 2018 Regular Session?" - NO

Elmore County

SPECIAL REFERENDUM ELECTION "Shall the powers previously authorized to the Elmore County Commission under Chapter 11-3A-1 et seq ., of the Code of Alabama , 1975, also known as "The Alabama Limited Self-Governance Act," be repealed in Elmore County? The powers authorized the County Commission to provide for its property and affairs; and for the public welfare, health and safety of its citizens throughout unincorporated areas of the county by excercising certain powers for protection of the county and public property under its control, except as otherwise prohibited and/or defined by law. The authorized powers include: (1) Abatement of weeds as a public nuisance; (2) Control of animals and animal nuisances; (3) Control of litter or rubbish; (4) Control of junkyards which create a public nuisance because of an accumulation of items; and (5) Abatement of noise, unsanitary sewage, or pollution creating a public nuisance." - YES

The name of the Alabama Limited Self Governance act is misleading since it really means removing the safeguards of the Alabama Constitution on counties from passing unnecessary regulations and increasing the size of the county government. A YES vote is a vote for Limited Government and property rights.

Etowah County

SPECIAL REFERENDUM Pursuant to Act No. 2017-305 Do you favor the legal sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages outside the corporate limits of any municipality within the county on Sunday as further provided for and regulated by ordinance of the county commission? - NO

(Proposed by Act 2018-109) - YES

Uses an existing sales tax for roads and bridges.

Geneva County

More Information on Amendment 2

AN EDUCATIONAL UPDATE FROM THE SOUTHEAST LAW INSTITUTE TM, INC.
A. Eric Johnston

Proposed Alabama Constitutional Amendments - Alabama Sanctity of Unborn Life

Another important constitutional amendment which will be voted on at the time of the general election will be a proposed
constitutional amendment recognizing the sanctity of unborn life in Alabama. The text of that amendment reads as follows:

(a) This state acknowledges, declares, and affirms that it is the public policy of this state to recognize and
support the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of unborn children, including the right to life.
(b) This state further acknowledges, declares, and affirms that it is the public policy of this state to ensure the
protection of the rights of the unborn child in all manners and measures lawful and appropriate.
(c) Nothing in this constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion.

The complete proposed amendment will not appear on the ballot. This is what you will see on the ballot:

“Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended; to declare and otherwise affirm
that it is the public policy of this state to recognize and support the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of
unborn children, most importantly the right to life in all manners and measures appropriate and lawful; and to
provide that the constitution of this state does not protect the right to abortion or require the funding of abortion.”

Since 1973, abortion has been legal in the United States. A decision by SCOTUS in Roe v. Wade opened the door for
virtually unlimited abortion. Through the years, subsequent SCOTUS cases have upheld Roe and enlarged on it. In some cases,
certain regulation has been permitted. Through the work of the Alabama Pro-Life Coalition (“APLC”), a significant number of
regulations have been passed that reduce the number of abortions and protect women’s healthcare, as much as legally permitted,
from the substandard care they receive in abortion clinics.

The unique thing about the Roe decision is that opposition to it has never gone away. Roe was a very badly decided case
with no legitimate constitutional underpinnings. The case was based on “an exercise of raw judicial power” as then Justice Byron
White said in a dissent to the case.

The pro-life community continues to work toward the day when abortion will again be outlawed. Abortion is based on
the terrible concept that the unborn child is not a person within the meaning of the U.S. Constitution. Because we amend the
Alabama Constitution to recognize personhood will not undo Roe.

However, with President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh as a Justice to SCOTUS, we see the possibility that
Roe may be reversed. Judicial, political and popular opinion opposition to Roe has remained constant for 45 years. Because it was
such an illegitimate decision, our hope and expectation are that Roe will be reversed and sanity concerning the sanctity of life will
be restored.

Therefore, this proposed constitutional amendment is a very important public policy statement for Alabama. We cannot
say for sure how SCOTUS may rule if it reversed Roe, but the chances are it would either reestablish personhood of the unborn
child or return the issue to the states. In either event, with approval of this constitutional amendment, the State of Alabama would
be obligated then to enact statutes to criminalize the act of abortion. Therefore, the importance of this constitutional amendment is
significant and is a very good strategic move in the fight to protect unborn life

SLI supports this amendment and urges a yes vote on it. SLI looks forward to the time when it will be able to work with
APLC to rid the State of Alabama of this horrific murdering of her children.

Your vote is critically important on Tuesday. We need strong Christians in office locally and statewide who will base their decisions on the Bible.

Christians should Vote, Mark Twain

Christians are a powerful voting bloc in the U.S. but only if they go to the polls and vote for godly candidates. The well-known skeptic and author Mark Twain once said of Christians:

"It will be conceded that a Christian's first duty is to God. It then follows, as a matter of course, that it is his duty to carry his Christian code of morals to the polls and vote them. Whenever he shall do that, he will not find himself voting for an unclean man, a dishonest man. If Christians would vote their duty to God at the polls, they would carry every election, and do it with ease. Their prodigious power would be quickly realized and recognized, and afterward there would be no unclean candidates upon any ticket, and graft would cease. If the Christians of America could be persuaded to vote God and a clean ticket, it would bring about a moral revolution that would be incalculably beneficent. It would save the country."
Colliers magazine, September 2, 1904

Mark Twain understood the importance of a Christian's responsibility as a citizen. He wrote, "A Christian's first duty is to God. It then follows, as a matter of course, that it is his duty to carry his Christian code to the polls and vote them... If Christians should vote their duty to God at the polls, they would carry every election, and do it with ease... it would bring about a moral revolution that would be incalculably beneficent. It would save the country."

Remember to Vote on Tuesday. We will be electing local, statewide, and congressional candidates. Voting is your God given Constitutional right that most citizens of other countries do not have. Polls are open from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM.

Vote on Tuesday (Date) Voting is a patriotic duty and gives you the opportunity to impact your culture with your Christian values. We will be selecting our leaders for local, state, and congressional offices.

Remember Election Day, Tuesday. Voting is a privilege and an important patriotic duty. Forward this to your church secretary and to your friends to be published in their church bulletin. Because Christians do not vote in significant numbers, our influence upon society is waning. In the primary elections this year, Christian voter turnout was about 25% from people in your church. Publishing one of the above announcements will increase voter participation 10 to 15%. Ask your pastor or who ever makes announcements to verbally make the announcement to go vote. This will increase voter participation an additional 10%.

When we see the good that results from applying God's principles, and the horror that results from rejecting them, doesn't it seem cruel and irresponsible to keep Jesus teachings about truth, love and compassion to ourselves? At very least, we should vote to keep OUT of office those who attempt to oppose God's authority.
