Miami, FL — This year’s November general election ballot includes six questions proposed to amend Florida’s constitution.

The program will be moderated by Bobby Henry Sr., publisher of The Westside Gazette, Broward County, Florida’s oldest and largest African American owned and operated newspaper.
