Alabama voters were in an affirmative mood when it came to constitutional amendments yesterday. The most popular was Amendment One, which allows the display of the Ten Commandments in all public spaces.That amendment received the approval of 72% of the voters.
Also popular was Amendment Two, which affirms the sanctity of unborn life and denies the right to an abortion. That amendment, which experts say may have little impact unless the U.S. Supreme Court changes its Roe vs. Wade ruling, received 59% approval statewide.
Voters also passed amendments changing the makeup of the University of Alabama’s Board of Trustees and the need for special elections to the Alabama Legislature.
