Ballot measures could have big impact on future of Cayuga County Legislature

A proposition on the ballot for all Cayuga County voters this election season asks voters to say yes or no to temporarily reducing some county Legislature terms, but what is the measure’s purpose?

The proposition, which appears on the back of the ballot, reads:

“Shall the term of Office for Cayuga County Legislators elected to the term beginning on January 1, 2022 be reduced from four (4) years to two (2) years to allow for redistricting based upon the 2020 Census and to set the term-limit for all County Legislators to a maximum of three (3) full elected four-year terms?”

The proposition is being made in advance of the 2020 U.S. Census, the results of which could lead to big changes on the Cayuga County Legislature.
