II.  That the above amendment proposed to the constitution be submitted to the qualified voters of the state at the state general election to be held in November, 2018.

III.  That the selectmen of all towns, cities, wards and places in the state are directed to insert in their warrants for the said 2018 election an article to the following effect:  To decide whether the amendments of the constitution proposed by the 2017 session of the general court shall be approved.

IV.  That the wording of the question put to the qualified voters shall be:

“Are you in favor of amending article 18 of the second part of the constitution to read as follows:

[Art.] 71.  [County Treasurers, County Attorneys, Sheriffs, and Registers of Deeds Elected.]  The County Treasurers, County Attorneys, Sheriffs and Registers of Deeds, shall be elected by the inhabitants of the several towns, in the several counties in the State, according to the method now practiced, and the laws of the State, Provided nevertheless the Legislature shall have authority to alter the manner of certifying the votes, and the mode of electing those officers; but not so as to deprive the people of the right they now have of electing them."

V.  That the secretary of state shall print the question to be submitted on a separate ballot or on the same ballot with other constitutional questions.  The ballot containing the question shall include 2 squares next to the question allowing the voter to vote “Yes” or “No.”  If no cross is made in either of the squares, the ballot shall not be counted on the question.  The outside of the ballot shall be the same as the regular official ballot except that the words “Questions Relating to Constitutional Amendments proposed by the 2017 General Court” shall be printed in bold type at the top of the ballot.

VI.  That if the proposed amendment is approved by 2/3 of those voting on the amendment, it becomes effective when the governor proclaims its adoption.
