Alabama Constitutional Amendment #4 as it appears on a sample ballot.
Alabama voters have defeated Amendment 4, a measure to remove racist language from Alabama's Constitution.
The amendment would have removed language mandating poll taxes and separate black and white schools. A similar amendment failed within the last decade.
Black legislators and the Alabama Education Association opposed the amendment because it left in a 1956 amendment that declared that Alabama children did not have a right to a public education.
