Takoma Park residents approve new City election dates

Voters in Takoma Park approved a ballot question Tuesday that will move City elections "to the Tuesday following the first Monday in November in each even-numbered year in order to coincide with Maryland statewide general elections." In plain English, that means Takoma Park elected offices will be filled on the same days voters choose their Congressional representatives or Governor statewide.

Not all on the City Council were thrilled with the proposal, or thought it would solve voter apathy issues in Takoma Park.

Residents voted 194-72 in approval of the change, according to the unofficial election results from the City.
