WASHINGTON — A plan to allow people living the United States illegally in College Park city elections has been postponed.
College Park Mayor Patrick Wojahn said a city council vote will likely be pushed back to early September.
The city council was supposed to vote on the proposal Tuesday but the bill’s sponsor, Councilwoman Christine Nagle, said that city leaders will first consider the possibility of placing the issue in the ballot in November.
Nearly a dozen cities in Maryland already allow all of its residents, including citizens living in the country illegally, the right to vote. College Park could become the biggest city in the state to grant that right if the bill passes.
