• WUFT News: Single-member districts to be offered to Alachua County voters in November. “An unusual referendum on November’s election offers a change in how voters elect Alachua County’s commissioners. Instead of a general election in which all Alachua County voters elect all five commissioners, the referendum asks if voters want to override the county charter and elect only one commissioner based on the district they live in, a process which is called the single election in the district. If the referendum passes, a voter living in District 1 would only vote for the District 1 commissioner instead of voting for all five.”
