When City of Jackson voters go to the polls for the November 6th election, they will be asked two questions.

These questions were placed on the ballot by the Jackson City Council based on a recommendation from the City of Jackson Charter Review Committee. The first question concerns eliminating the requirement that appointed officials be residents of the City of Jackson. The second question asks about eliminating the requirement that ward numbers be listed on petitions that circulate in the city, and eliminates the requirement that circulators be city residents. 

These were brought forward by the Charter Review Committee to get city rules in line with state law. The purpose of these ballot questions is to officially update language in the city’s charter. City government is currently cooperating with state laws regarding these matters, so the outcome of the votes will not change how the city conducts business.
