Text of the question:
|| PROVIDE FOR 50% PLUS ONE OF THE VOTES IN ORDER TO BE ELECTED
The current City Charter provides for a runoff election when a candidate with the highest number of votes receives less than 35% of the votes cast. This new rule for runoffs would first take effect March 2014. Should the Charter be amended to require that a winning candidate receive fifty percent (50%) plus one of the votes cast in an election even if a runoff election is required?
