State rep McGaugh supports local election ballot reform

A state representative and former Carroll County Clerk is backing a bill designed to make your April election ballot a little shorter.

Peggy McGaugh (R-Carrollton) says the bill would move bond issues and tax questions to the November ballot.

“The election authority having to line up the splits and the different jurisdictions in one election per year is just asking for failure and confusion,” said McGaugh.

McGaugh recommends that municipal races and school board elections stay on the April ballot. She adds that voters experience fatigue when they’re faced with a jam-packed ballot.
