The Maryland Staggered Elections for County Officials Amendment, also known as Question 1, was on the November 7, 2000 ballot in Maryland as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved. The measure exempted the Board of County Commissioners of Cecil County from the constitutional requirements that all State and county elections be held only in every fourth year on a particular date and that all State and county officers hold four-year terms, in order to allow staggered terms with elections held every second year.[1]
