Need help navigating Florida's proposed constitutional amendments? Your guide is here



For the 2012 general election, Florida voters are facing perhaps the longest ballot ever. The ballot will have choices for president, U.S. Senate, Congress, the state Legislature, county offices and merit retention for judges, plus city and county referendums.

But what may prompt some voters to go cross-eyed as they wind their way through the ballot is the Legislature's decision to place 11 proposed changes to the Constitution on the ballot. All of them, some written in densely legal language, appear in their entirety.

The Tampa Bay Times is publishing a closer look at what each amendment means so voters can study the amendments more closely before they head to the polls or before their ballot arrives in the mail.
