Two measures on the Nov. 5 general election ballot deal with changing Jefferson County’s manner of government and creating a Jefferson County charter.
The first measure asks voters whether to approve or reject starting the process.
The second asks them to choose five freeholders from each county commission district to write the charter.
What will happen
If the first measure is approved, then the elections of the individual freeholders will be certified. If the measure is defeated, they won’t be.
If voters approve, elected freeholders will be charged with developing by June 20, 2015, a county charter to be considered by voters.
Audience members will hear from candidates and can ask them questions.
Literature about home rule and freeholder candidates will be available.
