Conservative Party gears up for election battle
Leaders urging voters to reject Constitutional Convention
The next election is still several months away, but the Conservative Party of New York State isn’t wasting a minute as it prepares for political battles ahead.
The first of these skirmishes involves a referendum that New York state residents will vote on later this year on whether or not to authorize a constitutional convention.
The constitutional convention question will be on the ballot when the state’s voters go to the polls on Nov. 7. If the voters approve the measure, the next step would be to elect three convention delegates from each of the state’s 63 state Senate districts as well as 15 at-large delegates. That vote would take place in the November, 2018 general election.
The Constitutional Convention would take place in April of 2019.
