The Election Task Force encourages Neighborhood Councils to run elections cooperatively and if desired, to conduct regional elections with the assistance of the Department.

Regions are to be established by Neighborhood Councils and their regional alliances.

Neighborhood Council elections or selections should be monitored or overseen by a trained, independent third party.

The Election Task Force requests the City Council to allocate in the fiscal year 2012-2013 budget, the amount of $650,000 to the Department for additional staffing and resources for the Neighborhood Council election process.

The Election Task Force requests the City Council to expedite the process for contracting Independent Election Administrators and staffing associated with Neighborhood Council elections not to exceed sixty (60) days.

The Election Task Force recommends to Neighborhood Councils the inclusion of independent poll watchers as part of their elections.

Election challenges are to be heard and decided by arbiters hired and paid for by the Department.
