In two issues that received relatively little attention, voters were poised Tuesday night to overwhelmingly approve two constitutional amendments that could lead to property-tax breaks for disabled first responders and some seniors.

The proposals, known as amendments 3 and 5, were placed on the ballot by the Legislature.

Amendment 3 would allow lawmakers to grant property-tax exemptions for first responders who are totally and permanently disabled because of injuries suffered in the line of duty. With about 8 million votes counted statewide, the measure had support from more than 83 percent of voters.

Amendment 5, meanwhile, is aimed at allowing low-income seniors to continue receiving an additional homestead tax exemption when their property values rise above $250,000. It was being backed by about 78 percent of voters.
