Explanation

The bill requires municipalities to establish a separate voting district where certain higher education institutions are located under certain circumstances.

To the extent municipalities qualify for a separate voting district, there would be costs associated with hiring and training additional election day staff, possibly purchasing additional equipment, and hiring additional police.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to the number of separate voting districts in a municipality.
