Noncitizen voting language OK'd by Multnomah County committee

Multnomah County's Charter Review Committee is nearing its deadline to finalize recommended charter changes that will appear of the Nov. 8 ballot.

The Multnomah County Charter Review Committee has approved language that would amend the county's charter to allow voting by people who aren't U.S. citizens.

The committee's vote Tuesday, July 5, to approve language for the proposed charter change was its last procedural step on the issue.
