The senior would have to have an income less than $27,030, the home’s market value must be less than $250,000, “so you can’t have a big, fat condo on the beach,” and the senior must have lived there 25 years or more.

“You have to have a vote by local governments to put it in place,” Lux said.

• Amendment 12: “Appointment of student body president to Board of Governors.”

Lux said this amendment would create a new Council of Student Body Presidents from state colleges, the president of which would be one of 17 members of the Statewide Board of Governors of state schools. Florida State University does not participate in the current student body presidents’ group.

“I almost like this one as much as the dog track one in Miami a few years ago,” Lux said. “It’s not as good as pregnant pigs, though,” he said, referencing an amendment that once sought to protect expectant sows.

To expedite voting and to avoid delaying polling place lines, Lux encouraged voters to familiarize themselves with the candidates, amendments and the proposed new Crestview city charter, the ballot’s last item. The proposed charter would replace the current city charter with a city administrator form of government.
