Title

Amending Section 15.02 to eliminate all references to polling place locations in order to designate polling place locations by resolution.

Body

DRAFTER’S ANALYSIS:    Currently, polling places are listed in the City ordinances and any change to a polling location must be made by amending the ordinance. This proposal eliminates all references to specific polling places and instead would require designation of polling place locations by resolution prior to each election. This would allow more transparency about the rationale for each polling place change and would avoid having to change the ordinances every time polling places change. If this proposal is passed, a resolution would be passed before each election cycle that lists every polling place in that upcoming election, even if there are no changes in polling place locations.
