The Hagerstown City Council on Tuesday discussed amending a ballot question that would let voters decide whether to change the dates that municipal elections are held. The original question, which is to appear on the ballot during the city's general election on May 19, would give voters the opportunity to change municipal primary and general elections to coincide with the presidential ones. If that happens, the city's primary and general elections no longer would be held in March and May, but in February and November.

To bind or not to bind, that is the question facing the Hagerstown City Council on the 2012 general election ballot. The council has been considering a proposed change that would make elections nonpartisan - an election in which candidates are not nominated based on political party - and planned to pose a non-binding question to voters on the Nov. 8 ballot to gauge support. The original resolution, presented by City Attorney William Nairn during a work session in November 2011, indicated that the question would be nonbinding, but several council members questioned that notion during a work session Tuesday night.

The timing of this column allows me the opportunity to talk (nag) about one of my pet topics - voting. The Hagerstown primary election is this Tuesday. Vote. Ten Democratic City Council candidates are on the ticket seeking the five nominations for the general election. There are five candidates on the Republican ticket for council and a primary is not necessary. The five Democratic nominees selected Tuesday will face the five Republican nominees in the May 17 general election.

andrews@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A proposal to amend a section in the city's charter on election petitions met resistance from a city councilman Thursday night. City Recorder Sharon Flick asked the Martinsburg City Council to consider changing the time period for mayoral and council candidates to submit nominating petitions. Candidates currently may submit petitions between March 1 and 31. Flick said she'd like to make the filing period from Feb. 1 to 28, which would give the city's printer more time to create a general election ballot that easily can be understood.
