On Election Day, Nov. 7, 2017, New York voters will decide: “Shall there be a convention to revise the constitution and amend the same?” (N.Y. Const., Art. XIX, § 2).
Issues are: Campaign finance reform, redistricting reform, election administration reform, term limits, tax limits, public pension guarantees, environmental protection… Is a convention “good medicine” or “snake oil?”
