Pro and Con Arguments For and Against the Measure

This charter amendment was requested by the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections to bring Brooklyn Heights filing deadlines into line with other municipalities in the county.
This amendment increases the time between the filing of ballot issue petitions and their 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
