This Board Bill provides partisan and non-partisan elections, for the filing date of certain Offices of Mayor, Comptroller, President of the Board of Aldermen and Aldermen, to the forth Monday in October and ending on the first Monday in December, moving the Municipal Primary Election to the first Tuesday in February, to create a Runoff Municipal Primary Election on the first Tuesday in March. It allows the top two candidates in each of the partisan primary elections, in which there are three or more candidates and no candidate received over 50 percent of the total vote in the partisan election to then compete in a Runoff Municipal Primary Election to be held 4 weeks after the Municipal Primary Election, and providing in elections which there are only two candidates in the partisan elections for the offices of Mayor, Comptroller, President of the Board of Aldermen and Aldermen, that the candidate that receives the highest amount of votes shall be declared the winner and shall advance to the Municipal General Election on the first Tuesday in April to compete against any other winners of the other partisan elections and any Non-Partisan Candidate that files the proper petition.
