Pro and Con Arguments For and Against the Measure

This charter amendment was requested by the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections to bring Chagrin Falls filing deadlines into line with other municipalities in the county.
This amendment increases the time between the filing of a recall petition and its submission to voters. But it makes voting abroad--and early at home--easier for all voters in the county and for the Board of Elections. logo
