    House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.

    Amends Section 2-2 of the Carrboro Town Charter (SL 1987-476, as amended by SL 2007-270), providing that if the resolution adopted by the board of aldermen for a special election sets the date of such election concurrent with an election other than the municipal general election, then the resolution must prescribe the filing period and the filing fee. If the resolution sets as the date of the election a date other than the same date as another election, then the resolution must prescribe the filing period, filing fee, and absentee voting period for such special election, including an alternative location for one-stop absentee voting within the corporate limits of the municipality, rather than the office of the board of elections, if no other elections are conducted within the county on the same date. Makes a technical change.
