St. Charles County Won't Vote on Smoking Ban Proposal
According to St. Louis Post-Dispatch article, Circuit Judge Ted House threw out the ballot measure.
St. Charles County voters won't have the chance to vote on a smoking ban in November after Circuit Judge Ted House decided Tuesday to pull the measure off the ballot.
Anti-smoking advocate Don Young filed suit against St. Charles Couty Elections Director Rich Chrismer after Chrismer decided to pull the measure from the ballot.
House sided with Chrismer, who argued that the wording in the ballot language was inconsistent, according to an article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
"House said the council did not follow proper procedure to get it on the ballot."
