Advisory Neighborhood Commission 6B last week recommended that the city make several changes in its election laws in an attempt to avoid the snafus that plagued last fall's elections.
The ANC suggested that ANC elections be held every two years, that all city elections be held in even-numbered years, that all voters be required to reregister in person and that November's ANC elections be postponed to 1984, an ANC official said.
Commissioner Donald Dinan said the ANC's proposals would save the District money because city elections for ANC, school board, City Council and mayor would be held simultaneously rather than being spread over a year as they often have been.
He predicted that the change also would increase voter turnout, which "would mean we would get more rationalized and democratic results."
In other action, the ANC voted to oppose a developer's application for a multifamily building at a vacant lot at 653-655 A St. NE and Mt. Jezreel Baptist Church's application to demolish its church at Fifth and E streets SE to build another one.
An ANC official said the commission believes the church building has historical signifcance.
The ANC's next meeting is set for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at 921 Pennsylvania Ave. SE. Among the items on the agenda is an application for a beer and wine license for Discount Food Market, 518 Eighth St. SE.
