Memphis residents may get to vote on whether or not all employees of the city of Memphis must live in Memphis.

An ordinance to establish a city-wide referendum on the matter was slated for its first review by the Memphis City Council during a committee meeting Tuesday morning.

If the ordinance is passed, Memphis voters would be able to vote on the issue on Nov. 8, 2016, the same day as the national presidential election.

The question (as it is now) would ask:

“Shall the charter of the city of Memphis, Tennessee be amended to require all persons employed solely by the city of Memphis to live and reside within the city of Memphis, Tennessee?
