ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC)—This year, you’ll see more than just local races on your ballot.

There are several key proposals you’ll be asked to decide on, so News10NBC is going In-Depth to show you what’s on the table.

The first proposal covers a few things:

  • It would freeze the number of state senators at 63.
  • Amend the process for the counting of the state’s population.
  • Delete certain provisions in the state’s constitution that the United States Supreme Court said violates the U.S. constitution.

As for the second proposal:

  • Would guarantee the right to clean air, clean water, and a healthy environment for New Yorkers.

The third proposal:

  • Would eliminate the state’s 10 day voter registration period. If passed it would open up the possibility of same-day voter registration.

Fourth proposal

  • Would allow anyone who’s registered to vote by mail.

A fifth proposal is on the table, but it’s to vote on increasing the jurisdiction of the New York City Civil Court.
