Proposal 2 is receiving similar support. It would amend the constitution to: Recognize fundamental right to vote without harassing conduct among other voting accommodations. 67% are in favor with 23% opposed.

The poll margin of error is 4 points. Of those surveyed 41% consider themselves Democrats, 40% Republican, 15% Independent with 4% split as Undecided/Other or refused to answer the survey.
