Election dates are staying the same in Front Royal despite efforts to change that.
In fact, there are a lot of things not changing for Front Royal because a bill to update the town's charter was completely thrown out by delegates.
The town's vice mayor said they were trying to have non-partisan elections held in November on even numbered years.
Delegates ignored their request and made elections partisan, and on odd years.
"Due to the Federal Hatch Act, federal employees and contractors are not allowed to participate in a partisan election. I know I can look at the street that I live on, and can literally count houses of people that would not be able to participate in our local government because of a partisan election," said Vice Mayor Shae Parker.
He said Leesburg had the same request as the town of Front Royal, and it was granted. If the bill hadn't been thrown out, the mayor could have had an extended term of about a year and a half.
