The three propositions expected to be considered during the December 8, 2020 polls include; dual citizenship for natural born Liberians, reduction in the tenure of elected government officials and the changing of the election date from raining season in October to the dry season in November of each election year.

Proposition one focuses on dual citizenship for natural born Liberians. The symbols with two passport means you can be naturalized citizens in another country and keep his or her Liberian citizen while the one with the one passport indicates that you cannot be a citizen of another Country and still keep your Liberian citizenship.

Proposition two of the referendum highlight reduction in the tenure of elected government officials. The symbol with the small chair means small year in office meaning the tenure of proposition will reduce from six years to five years; representative  from six to five years and senator from nine years to seven years.

The symbol with the big chair means plenty years in office which implies that the tenure of the president should remain as six years, representative six years and senator nine years.

Similarly; proposition three symbol is represented by sun, rain and umbrella. The sun  indicates that the election date should be change from raining season to dry season while the symbol with the umbrella and rain means the election date should remain the same (raining season).
