Key Races: ?

Ballot initiatives/Referendums


:graybox: Question 1: Sale of Wine by Food Stores
   This proposed law would allow local licensing authorities to issue licenses for food
   stores to sell wine. The proposed law defines a “food store” as a retail vendor, such
   as a grocery store, supermarket, shop, club, outlet, or warehouse-type seller, that
   sells food to consumers to be eaten elsewhere (which must include meat, poultry, dairy
   products, eggs, fresh fruit and produce, and other specified items), and that may sell
   other items usually found in grocery stores. Holders of licenses to sell wine at food
   stores could sell wine either on its own or together with any other items they sell.

:graybox: Question 2: Nomination of Candidates for Public Office
   This proposed law would allow candidates for public office to be nominated by more than
   one political party or political designation, to have their names appear on the ballot
   once for each nomination, and to have their votes counted separately for each nomination
   but then added together to determine the winner of the election.

:graybox: Question 3: Family Child Care Providers
   This proposed law would allow licensed and other authorized providers of child care
   in private homes under the state’s subsidized child care system to bargain collectively
   with the relevant state agencies about all terms and conditions of the provision of child
   care services under the state’s child care assistance program and its regulations.
