§8-5-14. Municipal executive committees; election expenses;
applicability of state primary and general election
laws; election days.
Except as otherwise provided by charter provision or ordinance
or this code, municipal executive committees shall exercise similar
functions and be governed by the same laws in regard to municipal
primary elections and regular municipal elections as county
executive committees in regard to county-state primary and general
elections, so far as the same may be applicable. All expenses of
conducting municipal primary elections and regular municipal
elections shall be paid by the municipality. The provisions of
chapter three of this code, referring more particularly to primary
elections and general elections, shall, so far as the same can be
applied and so far as not otherwise provided by charter provision
or ordinance, govern the conduct of municipal primary elections and
regular municipal elections, as the case may be. No municipal
primary election shall be held on the day of the county-state
primary election except as provided in section five of this article
nor less than twenty-five days immediately preceding the regular
municipal election, unless a shorter period of time is established
by charter or ordinance.
