There are six Charter Amendments that will appear on the November 3, 2020, general election ballot.
Every ten years, the Charter Review Commission reviews the Alachua County Home Rule Charter and proposes amendments or revisions for placement on the general election ballot. The County Commission can also place Charter Review Amendments on the ballot.
This November, four of the ballot amendments were proposed by the Charter Review Commission, and two by the County Commission.
In 1986, the electorate established a home rule charter for Alachua County. This gave the County the full local home rule benefits afforded by the Constitution of the State of Florida.
