Public testimony taken in moving to even-numbered years for local elections

DULUTH, MN – The years we have elections in the city of Duluth could soon be changing.

The Duluth Charter Commission is throwing around that idea.

The Commission took public testimony Wednesday night in city council chambers on the possibility of moving local elections to even-numbered years.

Local meaning city, county and school board offices.

“There has to be a determination as to what’s, what’s more favorable? The cost savings or having our municipal elections during a cycle where they could potentially be kind of pushed to the back burner behind other more high profile elections,” Duluth City Charter Commission President Andrew Poole said.

The Commission will have another meeting on May 8th to discuss the proposal and potentially vote.
