RALEIGH – A bill to require that most of Asheville City Council be elected from six single-member districts passed the House 67-49 on the first of two required votes Tuesday.

That probably means the way is clear for the measure to become law, barring either a last-minute change in sentiment among legislators or a procedural snag that would keep the Senate from agreeing to an amendment before this year’s main legislative session ends.

The bill sponsored by Sen. Chuck Edwards, R-Henderson, requires City Council adoption of a district plan by Nov. 1, six days before city voters may be asked in a referendum whether they want to go to a district election system.
