A nonbinding question on divestment from publicly held Israeli bonds could be headed for the ballot in a city near Boston this November. Aldermen in Somerville failed to take action before Aug. 9 on putting the question on the ballot. Now the Somerville Divestment Project has until Sept. 26 to submit signatures from 10 percent of the city’s 39,665 registered voters, to be certified by the city’s election commission, according to the commission chairman, Nicholas Salerno.
