Temple City Voter Participation Compliance Measure (Measure VP)

Beginning January 1, 2018, Senate Bill 415 (“SB 415”), the California Voter Participation Rights Act, took effect. SB 415 prohibits a local government from holding an election on any date other than a statewide election date if doing so in the past has resulted in voter turnout that is at least 25 percent below the average turnout in that jurisdiction in the last four statewide general elections, as specified.

Since Temple City's standalone municipal election turnout rate for the past four statewide elections was less than half the rate needed to meet the "turnout less 25%" standard under SB 415, City Council at their meeting on February 20, 2018, adopted Resolution No.18-5313 ordering submission to the qualified electors of the City, a measure to amend the City's Charter Section 501 to change the date of the City's Municipal Elections from March of odd-numbered years to the Statewide Election in March of even-numbered years, to comply with SB 415.

Temple City Voter Participation Compliance Measure

To comply with State law intended to increase voting participation in local elections and save money on election costs, shall the Temple City Charter be amended to change the date for Temple City municipal elections from the first Tuesday after the first Monday of March in odd numbered years to the first Tuesday after the first Monday of March in even numbered years (which does not otherwise grant the City new powers)?


YES
NO

City Council also adopted Resolution No. 18-5314 requesting the Board of Supervisors to consolidate the City's Special Municipal election to be held on June 5, 2018, with the Statewide Election.
