Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation shortens the advance voting period for municipal elections in cities with populations of 1,000 or less.  If said municipality adopts an ordinance and voters pass a referendum, the advance voting period would be reduced (for both general elections and runoffs) to the second Monday before the election to the following Friday.  This new advance voting period would not apply if the municipal election is held in conjunction with any county, state or federal election.
