Current Bill Summary

SB 876 - Under current law, any municipality with less than 1,000 inhabitants may adopt a proposal allowing for the waiver of any election to a nonpartisan office if the number of candidates for the office is equal to the number of positions available and if no ballot measure is placed on the ballot. This act increases the population threshold to 2,000.

This act is identical to a provision in the truly agreed to SS/SCS/SB 592 (2018) and the truly agreed to SS/SCS/HB 1446 (2018).
