This measure sought to make an amendment to the county charter so that when there is a vacancy, and the term has more than 12 months remaining, an election will be held for voters to choose a replacement rather than a replacement be appointed by the governor. Proponents saw it as a good thing for the people to decide who should serve, but the cost to hold a special election was a concern.[2]
