Election Day polling locations, information

Today's election allows voters to weigh in on nine propositions including two that address property tax exemptions for veterans and the spouses of veterans who are killed in active duty.

Proposition 6 proposes the creation of a State Water Implementation Fund, which will be used to fund water projects throughout the state by providing low-interest loans and other forms of assistance to public entities. 

Other propositions address reverse mortgage loans, ad valorem taxes as they relate to aircraft parts, vacancies in the governing body of home-rule municipalities and expanding the sanctions that may be assesses against a judge or justice following a formal proceeding instituted by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct.
