Constitutional Amendment Questions
Must Article I of the Constitution of this State, relating to the declaration of rights under the state’s constitution, be amended by adding Section 25 so as to provide that hunting and fishing are valuable parts of the state’s heritage, important for conservation, and a protected means of managing nonthreatened wildlife; to provide that the citizens of South Carolina shall have the right to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife traditionally pursued, subject to laws and regulations promoting sound wildlife conservation and management as prescribed by the General Assembly; and to specify that this section must not be construed to abrogate any private property rights, existing state laws or regulations, or the state’s sovereignty over its natural resources?
A ‘Yes’ vote will make it a constitutional right for citizens to hunt and fish and will permit the State to legally provide for proper wildlife management and the protection of private property rights.
Must Article II of the Constitution of this State, relating to the right of suffrage, be amended by adding Section 12 so as to provide that the fundamental right of an individual to vote by secret ballot is guaranteed for a designation, a selection, or an authorization for employee representation by a labor organization?
A ‘Yes’ vote will give employees the constitutional right to vote by secret ballot when they are voting on whether to be represented by a labor union.
Must Section 36(A), Article III of the Constitution of this State be amended so as to increase from three to five percent in increments of one-half of one percent over four fiscal years the amount of state general fund revenue in the latest completed fiscal year required to be held in the General Reserve Fund?
A ‘Yes’ vote will increase the amount of money state government must keep in the General Reserve Fund (its “rainy day” fund) from 3% of the previous year’s revenue to 5% of the previous year’s revenue.
Yes- 4777, No-1665
Must Section 36(B), Article III of the Constitution of this State be amended so as to provide that monies from the Capital Reserve Fund first must be used, to the extent necessary, to fully replenish the applicable percentage amount in the General Reserve Fund?
A ‘Yes’ vote will require that the Capital Reserve Fund’s first priority is to replenish the State’s General Reserve Fund (its “rainy day” fund) instead of serving to offset midyear budget cuts at state agencies.
The Local Questions
County Board of Education Referendum
Do you favor the Dillon County Board of Education elected?
Referendum To Dissolve Maple Swamp Watershed Conservation District
(only some precincts will vote on this)
Should the Maple Swamp Watershed Conservation District having met all obligations be dissolved?
Maple Swamp Watershed was formed in 1962 to solve an identified problem in the community flood prevention and drainage. A board of directors who are elected on a nonpartisan basis for a four-year term governs the watershed district. The watershed board was formed to assist in implementing and operating the watershed district. This board has been inactive for many years and serves no useful purpose since this watershed has been completed for over 40 years.
The Dillon Soil and Water conservation District has received petitions from registered voters residing in the watershed district to dissolve the watershed district board. The Conservation District has determined that all obligations of the watershed have been met and followed the policy according to the South Carolina Code of Laws Chapter 48-11-190 for placing this referendum on the ballot to dissolve the watershed district board. The Dillon Soil and Water Conservation District supports this referendum to dissolve the Watershed Board.
Vote YES to dissolve the watershed district.
Vote NO to not dissolve the watershed district.
