California’s primary elections for elective office and propositional measures will be held on Tuesday, June 8, 2010.
Proposition 13 is a legislative constitutional amendment that allows for limitation in property tax in regard to the construction of buildings that have adapted earthquake security developments.
Furthermore, proposition 14 alters the way primary elections will take place. It makes certain that the two candidates, who receive the most votes without regard to their party preference, will be listed on the general election ballot.
The California Fair Elections Act, which is proposition 15, opposes restrictions on the public financing of political campaigns for the Secretary of State candidates. If passed, revenue will be boosted to $6 million every four years.
Proposition 16 states that two-thirds of voters must agree to allow the government to supply new customers with electricity or to create an energy program for the community using public funding.
Proposition 17, which is said to have no effect on state insurance taxes, plans to permit auto insurance companies to alter the price of insurance for its customers depending on whether they have a constant record of insurance coverage.
The final day to request for a vote-by-mail ballot via mail is June 1, 2010.
The deadline to register to vote is May 24, 2010. Registration is free and straightforward. Forms can be found online at http://www.sos.ca.gov or at public places such as post offices, libraries, city and county government offices, and the California Secretary of State’s Office.
