Attached to this communication is the Type C Notice of Referendum Election for the referendum that will be on all ballots statewide for the Spring Election and Presidential Preference Vote.  The referendum is the result of 2017 Enrolled Joint Resolution 53 which became 2017 Enrolled Joint Resolution 13 and was agreed to it by a majority of the members elected to each of the two houses.

The Type C Notice of Referendum must be published on April 6, 2020, the day before the Spring Election.  Whenever a weekly newspaper is used for publication, the notice shall appear in the newspaper's closest issue preceding the election.  You may choose to publish the Type C Notice on Saturday or Sunday preceding the election, if you determine that more effective notice will be given.

A copy of the Type C Notice must be provided to municipal clerks for posting at each polling place on Election Day.
