    The 12 constitutional amendments on this year’s ballot are the most since 1998, when the state’s Constitution Revision Commission — which meets once every 20 years — put nine of 13 amendments on the ballot. The Constitution Revision Commission convened this year and placed eight amendments on the ballot.

    In some cases, measures have been grouped together, meaning voters will have to choose to approve or reject disparate proposals that have been linked in one amendment. Floridians will have to decide whether they want to ban both vaping indoors and offshore oil and gas drilling, and if they want to require Miami-Dade to elect its sheriff and create a state counter-terrorism office and add an existing veterans affairs department to the constitution.

    To be approved, any constitutional amendment requires 60 percent of the vote. Here’s what this year’s amendments do:

    Vaping and drilling is not the same as chocolate and peanut butter. The amendments on the ballot are interesting.

    Since most left wingers are historically impaired it's important to note that these are proposed changes in the State constitution not the U.S. Constitution.
