BALLOT PROPOSITIONS TO BE VOTED ON AT THE GENERAL ELECTION
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT A:
    The Wyoming Constitution allows the state to invest state funds in equities such as the stock of corporations, but does not allow the funds of counties, cities, and other political subdivisions to be invested in equities. The adoption of this amendment would allow the funds of counties, cities, and other political subdivisions to be invested in equities to the extent and in the manner the legislature may allow by law. Any law authorizing the investment of specified political subdivision funds in equities would require a two-thirds vote of both houses of the legislature.
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT B:
    Currently, the Wyoming Constitution requires Wyoming Supreme Court justices and district court judges to retire upon reaching the age of seventy (70). This amendment increases the mandatory retirement age of Supreme Court justices and district court judges from age seventy (70) to age seventy-five (75).
BALLOT PROPOSITION NO. 1:
HOSPITAL DISTRICT MILL LEVY
Shall the Niobrara County Commissioners be authorized to continue to impose the mill levy increase levied upon the assessed valuation of taxable property from three (3) to six (6) mills?
                    BALLOT PROPOSITION NO. 2:
NIOBRARA SENIOR CITIZEN SERVICE DISTRICT MILL LEVY CONTINUATION
Shall the Niobrara Senior Citizen Service district mill levy be continued, with a maximum levy of one (1) mill, (not to exceed two (2) mills), upon the taxable property of the district?
VOTER ASSISTANCE
If a voter requires assistance to vote at the polls by reason of blindness, disability, or inability to read or write, he may be given assistance by a person of his choice.
