What are all those ballot measures??

November 1, 2013

Although there’s been a lot of talk about the ballot measure concerning additional casinos in New York State, there are FIVE additional measures on the ballot this year. SURPRISE! Take a moment to look these over on our ballot measures page and be prepared. Otherwise, it might be a long night the polling place with all the reading you’ll have to do.
