Doral’s voters have the power to change the city’s charter — it’s constitution — during the Aug. 26 primary election.
City governments have documents like constitutions called charters. The city charter sets out basic rules such as how local officials are elected, how long they may serve, and what authority the city government may exercise in other areas.
Every five years, the City Council appoints a five-person Charter Review Commission to examine the rules and suggest changes.
Ten amendments to Doral’s charter have been proposed by this year’s commission. Voters in Doral will decide whether or not the changes will be enacted by voting “yes” or “no” on each amendment in the Aug. 26 primary.
City residents must register by July 28 to vote in the election.
