AN ACT TO PROVIDE FLEXIBILITY IN FILLING VACANCIES IN THE OFFICE OF MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL IN THE CITY OF DURHAM.
House committee substitute to the 3rd edition makes the following changes. Further amends Sections 13.2 of the Charter of the City of Durham, SL 1975-671, by adding that if a State or county primary or general election, municipal primary or general election, referendum, or special election is scheduled to be held within 120 days of the date the vacancy occurs, and there are at least 10 days before the date by which mail-in absentee ballots must be available for voting for that scheduled election, the City Council must call for a special election in accordance with Section 13.3 to fill the vacancy for the remainder of the unexpired portion of term to coincide with that scheduled election.
