    Texas voters are deciding on seven proposed amendments to the state Constitution.

    The polls are open until 7 p.m. Tuesday. No statewide offices are up for grabs on this ballot. Congressional and legislative races elections are still a year away.

    The seven proposed amendments range from issues related to property tax exemptions for disabled veterans to reducing restrictions on Texans borrowing against equity in their homes.

    Proposition 7 would let banks and credit unions offer raffles and other prizes to people opening savings accounts.
