MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot residents on Tuesday will be voting on whether to change the city’s home rule charter, as a first step toward a possibly smaller City Council.

If voters approve changing the charter, it will clear the way for an initiated measure to be placed on the June election ballot.

A citizen group wants to reduce the council’s size from 14 members elected from seven wards to five members elected at large. The group believes that would ensure competitive races and force council members to look more broadly at city issues.

There is no organized opposition to the proposal.
