Alexandria Considers Moving Election Day

WTOP reports:

The City of Alexandria has set up a special committee that will look into changing election day from May to November.

Last May, only 20 percent of registered voters in Alexandria turned out for the elections for mayor, city council and the school board...

A report is due back by the end of June.

The change could occur in 2009 and the City Council would have to approve any recommendations made by the committee.

La République populaire d'Alexandrie should also consider making municipal elections non-partisan or establishing council districts so that voters have some influence on the candidates other than providing a partisan rubber stamp.
