This measure was approved

  • YES 908 (58.6%)Approveda
  • NO 640 (41.3%)[1]

This measure sought to amend the village charter so that there would not be runoff elections and make it that candidates would just need to receive the most votes to be elected into the office.[2]

Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

The Village Charter currently requires a runoff election if no candidate for a council office receives a majority of the votes cast for that seat. Shall the Village Charter be amended to decide ties by lot and eliminate runoff elections by removing the majority vote requirement and providing that the candidate for office in each seat who receives the highest number of votes cast for that seat be elected to office?[3]
