40:69A-15. Ballots; submission of question of adoption of optional plan of government
If the charter commission shall recommend that the question of adopting one of the optional plans of government authorized by this act shall be submitted to the voters of the municipality, it shall be the duty of the municipal clerk to cause the question of adoption or rejection to be placed upon the ballot at such time as the commission shall in its report specify. The commission may cause the question to be submitted to the people at the next general or regular municipal election, occurring not less than 60 days following the filing of a copy of the commission's report with the clerk, or at a special election occurring not less than 60 days or more than 120 days after the filing of the report, at such time as the commission's report shall direct. At such election the question of adopting that plan of government recommended by the charter commission shall be submitted to the voters of the municipality in the same manner as other public questions to be voted upon by the voters of a single municipality. The charter commission shall frame the question to be placed upon the ballot as provided in section 1-14 and, if it deems appropriate, an interpretative statement to accompany such question.
