A Mt. Prospect Voting Change Referendum measure was on the February 2 ballot in Cook County for voters in the village of Mt. Prospect.

This measure passed

  • YES 5,121 (73.95%)Approveda
  • NO 1,804 (26.05%)[1]

The referendum asked voters if they would like to eliminate primary elections, continue electing the mayor and trustees in a nonpartisan election and require 1 percent of registered voters to approve a nomination. Some trustees believed the wording was too confusing for the residents, but the wording was kept after the mayor agreed with the current language. If the village had not approved this their election model would follow that of the state. 1 percent would equal 45 signatures, those that participated in that last municipal election.[2]
