Toledo city council will consider some charter changes later today. Among the proposals, city council may move its primary from September to May.
Those charter changes will be under consideration at a committee-of-the-whole hearing this afternoon. Toledo, Cleveland, and Akron are the only major Ohio cities to still hold a September primary, which the council president believes doesn't give new candidates enough time to gain traction in time for November.
The move also would give endorsed candidates more time to campaign with official party support. If council puts the charter change on the ballot, voters would decide the issue in November alongside the Toledo mayor's race.
