Title: I Need Some Help On Two Ballot Questions (Virginia)
Post by: mrclose on November 05, 2018, 05:14:09 PM
I know that the following is in English but I don't have a clue as to what the questions are actually asking? :cursing:

Both questions are on tomorrows ballots.

If you don't live in Virginia but know the answers anyway .. Please jump right in!

Your Voter Guide you get in the mail should help you.

Or go on line for your state and look for your Voter Guide information.


 WHAT ARE THOSE QUESTIONS ON THE BALLOT ALL ABOUT?

You have a chance to change Virginia's Constitution!  Two ballot questions will be included on Election Day.
1.Should a county, city, or town be authorized to provide a partial tax exemption for real property that is subject to recurrent flooding, if flooding resiliency improvements have been made on the property?
2.Shall the real property tax exemption for a primary residence that is currently provided to the surviving spouses of veterans who had a one hundred percent service-connected, permanent, and total disability be amended to allow the surviving spouse to move to a different primary residence and still claim the exemption?

A "yes" on Question 1 would give localities the ability to give property owners a partial real estate tax exemption if they live in flood prone areas and have made improvements to address the flooding.  A "no" would not allow the exemption.

Question 2 is a little more complex, but a "yes" would allow the surviving spouse of a 100 percent disabled veteran to move to a new place of residence they own and claim a tax exemption.  A "no" vote would not allow the exemption.

Thank You Walks.

I had read those explanations but was still in a state of confusion ... 'Until' I read your post!
(I'm being serious)

I'm leaning "yes" on both.

Sound about right?

The ones I like are the ones you have to say no for a yes voter or yes for a no voter.  Their pulling that all the time in Washington state.  I see Oregon state has started doing the same thing.  So yes question everything.

Thank You.

I voted yes on both and because the second one dealt with a vets spouse .. I couldn't say no.
(I'm a vet myself and there is nothing that I wouldn't do for a spouse ... "unless" she (or he) remarried.)
