One issue at the top of your ballot in the 2016 general election may come as a surprise because there has been very little publicity about it. It concerns a Public Question to decide on an amendment to the state Constitution.

Indiana only allows the legislature to propose amendments to the Constitution, and only after a measure passes both houses in two consecutive legislatures (in this case, 2014 and 2015), and with the same wording, can the question proposed be put on the ballot. The exact wording of the question was determined by Senate Enrolled Act No. 57, effective July 1, 2016, and certified for the Indiana ballot Aug. 9, 2016.
