a. In any City election, the position of candidate names for any particular office shall be alternated upon the official ballots so that the name of each candidate shall appear substantially an equal number of times at the top, at the bottom, and in each intermediate place of the list or group of candidates in which it belongs, insofar as may be practicable.
b. Only one form of ballot within each City precinct is necessary. The names of the candidates shall be rotated as follows:
1. First, all City precincts shall be listed in alphabetical order City-wide for mayoral candidates and in alphabetical order by district for all Council candidates.
2. In the precinct first listed, the names of the candidates for each office shall appear in alphabetical order.
3. In each successive precinct, the names of candidates for each office shall be consecutively rotated in alphabetical order by placing in the last position for each office the name of the first candidate as positioned in the preceding precinct, and by moving up one position the name of each other candidate. (Ord. No. G-5390, § 1, 2009; Ord. No. G-5737, 2012)
