"Shall the Minnesota Constitution be amended to allow the owner of agricultural land or nonhomesteaded, noncommercial real property or the owner of commercial or industrial real property who on that property conducts a small business as defined by law to vote on local levies or referendums where the real property is located?"

  • YES
