Ballot questions


Question 1: Filing fees

The first question on the ballot asks voters whether the City Charter should be amended to raise candidate filing fees from $20 for each office to $500 for mayor, $250 for City Council member and $100 for Park Board and Board of Estimate and Taxation. 

The push for higher filing fees comes in wake of the crowded Minneapolis mayoral race in 2013, which had 36 candidates appear on the ballot. 

Question 2: 70/30 rule
