What’s on the ballot?
There are two statewide ballot measures:

Proposition HH, The Property Tax Changes and Revenue Change Measure which relates to state property taxes and revenue limits.
The ballot measure would reduce property valuation rates over the next decade and allow property owners to exempt part of their property’s value from taxation.
The nonpartisan legislative council staff has created this guide to calculate how Proposition HH will impact individual taxpayers.

Proposition II, The Property Tax Changes and Revenue Change Measure which relates to the tax revenue generated by tobacco and nicotine product sales.
The ballot measure would let the state keep more of the money it gets from taxes on tobacco and nicotine sales.
Read more about these measures in the state’s ballot information “blue book.”
Read more information about the two state-wide ballot measures on the Secretary of State’s website.
