FOR the purpose of proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Maryland to

BY proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Maryland
Article XVII — Quadrennial Elections
Section 7

SECTION 1. BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF
MARYLAND, (Three—fifths of all the members elected to each of the two Houses
concurring), That it be proposed that the Constitution of Maryland read as follows:

Article XVII - Quadrennial Elections

The purpose of this Article is to reduce the number of elections by providing that
all State and county elections shall be held only in every fourth year, and at the time
provided by law for holding congressional elections, and to bring the terms of
appointive officers into harmony with the changes effected in the time of the
beginning of the terms of elective officers. The administrative and judicial officers of
the State shall construe the provisions of this Article so as to effectuate that purpose.
For the purpose of this Article only the word "officers" shall be construed to include
those holding positions and other places of employment in the state and county
governments whose terms are fixed by law, but it shall not include any appointments
made by the Board of Public Works, nor appointments by the Governor for terms of
three years.
