Amendment One deals with language describing the right to vote. It currently reads “every” U.S. citizen. It would change to “only” U.S. citizens. It would not change the requirements of voting.
Amendment Two covers changes to the state judicial system. It allows the Alabama Supreme Court to appoint Administrative Directors of Court. Membership of the Judicial Inquiry Commission has been increased.
