Republican activist Robin Ficker has collected enough signatures to place a proposal for term limits on the November ballot, the Montgomery County Board of Elections announced Tuesday.
The ballot question will ask Montgomery voters whether the county executive and members of the County Council should be limited to three consecutive terms.
In a letter to Ficker posted on the board’s website, election director Margaret Jurgensen said petitions he submitted earlier this month “contained more than the requisite ten thousand (10,000) signatures” of registered voters necessary for a place on the ballot.
Jurgensen did not specify how many signatures were validated. Ficker said he delivered about 18,000 to the county.
Certification of the signatures opens a 10-day window for anyone opposed to the ballot question to petition for review in circuit court.
