Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - Tuesday, people in Moorhead will choose a new mayor and four new council members.

They will also vote on a proposal to move Moorhead elections to even calendar years.

Those against the proposal say moving the elections will dwarf city issues with larger national politics.

If passed, officials say the city could save more than $16,000 and increase voter turnout.

The city clerk says odd year turnouts are around 0-18%; 73% in the 2012 presidential election.
