CHARTER AMENDMENTS

Question A:
REDISTRICTING DATES

Changing the Howard County Charter to allow the County Council to set dates for drawing new Council district orders. After each official count of everyone who lives in the County, the Council would quickly form a redistricting commission and set dates for the commission to submit a plan for new Council district borders, and for the plan to become law if the Council does not adopt a different plan. The dates for these actions are now set by the County Charter, which uses an outdated State election schedule.

Question B:
CITIZEN BOARD TERM

Changing the Howard County Charter to shorten the term a resident would serve as a member on most County boards from five years to three years.

For* Against
147,581 20,810
% of Total 87.6% 12.4%


Question C:
COUNTY EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION

Changing the Howard County Charter to prohibit employment discrimination by Howard County based on a person's disability, color, national origin, immigration status, age, occupation, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, family status, or personal appearance. The prohibition would no longer include the word sex and the County could still not make an employment decision based on a person's political or religious opinions or associations or race.

For* Against

% of Total 80.1% 19.9%
