Question: Should section be amended to remove the requirement that ballots be printed to provide an opportunity to mark the ballot with an “X” and replace with a provision that voters “shall record their choices in the manner prescribed by the general law of the State”?

Proposed Language:

§ 11     Ballots

All ballots used in elections held under authority of this Charter shall be without part marks or designations. Ballots used for the nomination or election of candidates shall contain a complete list of the offices to be filled, and the names of candidates for each office shall be arranged under the title thereof. Voters shall record their choices in the manner prescribed by the general law of the State.
