Coming up on the October 12 ballot, Louisiana voters will decide the fate of four constitutional changes. 

A nonpartisan organization has details about the proposals.

The Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana, known as PAR, has released its yearly online guide to the constitutional amendments which will appear on the ballot.

The organization warns that this year's amendment lineup will be "especially challenging" for voters because they are "among the most arcane proposals citizens have faced" on their ballots.

Among this year's amendments are proposals governing an education fund, a tax appeal board and affordable housing developments in New Orleans.

The PAR guide doesn't offer recommendations about how to vote, but it does provide the arguments of supporters and opponents of each proposal.

Early voting begins September 28 for the elections.
