The New York City Council passed legislation establishing a Charter Revision Commission (Commission) to draft a new or revised City Charter in April 2018.

On September 4, the Commission approved three ballot questions to be approved by voters in November.

One ballot measure would reduce contribution limits for all candidates and amend public matching funds for candidates participating in the public financing program.

The other ballot measures involve civic engagement and community boards.
