I need education re: the Constitutional amendment on the Nov ballot

So this:

Constitutional amendment providing that a person accused of any criminal offense for which the State is not seeking a sentence of death in superior court may, in writing or on the record in court and with the consent of the trial judge, waive the person's right to a trial by jury.

... will be on the ballot statewide in November.

Why is it on the ballot? And who is it meant to help or harm? Where can I go to educate myself on this issue?

Look: quick website that will show exchange plans and estimate subsidy


It asks all the right questions:
age / tobacco usage / county
(those are the only things that will determine your base premium)
and it does seem to reflect the plan info that I've seen after spending far, far longer on
It does not verify income but if you're just plan/premium-curious, then that is not really necessary.

And it is fast! Really, really fast.

I found this posted on a local GOP email list. We're citizens - sorry, "customers" - too, so I don't think she'll mind. Too much.
