These questions are non-binding and are for advisory purposes only. An advisory question does not result in a new, changed, or rejected law or constitutional amendment. Rather, the advisory question symbolically makes heard the general opinion of the voting population in regard to the issue at hand. Political parties place nonbinding questions on ballots to gauge voters’ priorities.
