HB18-1039 - Change Date Of Regular Special District Elections

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning changing regular special district elections to May of each odd-numbered year, and, in connection therewith, adjusting the length of terms served by directors elected in 2020 and 2022 in order to implement the new election schedule.

Currently, regular special district elections are held on the Tuesday immediately succeeding the first Monday of May in every even-numbered year. Commencing in 2023, the bill moves such elections to the Tuesday following the first Monday of May in odd-numbered years.

In order to implement the new date on which regular special district elections will be held, section 4 of the bill provides that the directors elected at the special district elections held in 2020 and 2022 will serve 3-year terms.

Section 5 makes a conforming amendment to the 'Rail District Act of 1982', which uses the same election schedule as provided for special district directors.
(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
