Agenda Item Summary:
For several years, the City has combined its municipal election with the primary election held in June. The primary election is administered by the County. By combining the elections, voters are able to complete their civic duty in a single trip. The combined elections are administered by the County’s highly trained staff. The City is responsible to reimburse the County for its proportionate share of the election. This allows there to be cost savings from shared equipment and staffing.

Though there are no scheduled municipal elections for June of 2024, by agreeing to the proposal the City is signifying to the County that it wishes to continue this long term relationship.
