Staff Analysis of the Legislation

Current law authorizes, if passed by local act, the nonpartisan election of candidates to fill county judicial offices, local boards of education and offices of consolidated governments.  This bill removes the option of having the offices filled via nonpartisan election.  Current local acts authorizing nonpartisan elections remain in effect.  This applies moving forward.
