Maryland city didn’t pass noncitizen voting after all

FROM CBS BALTIMORE:

Turns out, officials in the Maryland city of College Park failed to pass a charter amendment that would have allowed non-citizens to vote in municipal elections.

The city made the announcement Friday, after officials realized that the amendment failed to get enough votes, when it was initially believed it had passed.

For most council actions, a simple majority of members present is needed for passage. But the city charter was changed in June to require approval by six members to change the charter.
