"As The Hill reports, the charter amendment - allowing undocumented immigrants, green-card holders, and immigrants with student visas to vote in municipal elections - was thought to have passed on Tuesday.
However, while the council voted in favor of the proposal by a 4-3 margin, a change to the city's charter in June requires changes receive at least six affirmative votes, the city explained in a press release Friday night.
College Park Mayor Patrick Wojahn shared the update Friday night on Facebook, saying
"It is with a considerable degree of embarrassment and regret that I share this announcement from the city regarding the proposed charter resolution to allow voting by non-citizens in College Park.
I accept my fair share of responsibility for not realizing the impact of recent charter amendments on this issue."
Aw, too bad, so sad.
