Ballot questions in Baltimore almost never fail. Over the past two decades, more than 100 questions have been put to city voters, probing their thoughts on issues ranging from borrowing money to making it easier for the City Council to oust a mayor. During that time, voters have rejected only one question, a 2004 effort to lower the minimum age to become a council member.
Baltimore voters almost always say yes to ballot questions. That could mean the city’s next mayor is limited to 8 years in office.
