Summary

The summary from the Legislative Council for this measure was:

Proposition 102 would require that if a bond or special assessments election is called, the vote must equal at least ten percent of the qualified electors of the political subdivision who are registered 50 days prior tei the election. In addition, this proposition would delete a reference limiting voters at such elections to real property taxpayers Under existing law there is no minimum participation requirement for a bond or special assessments election to be valid. Moreover, the requirement providing that only real property taxpayers may vote in such an election was ruled unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court in Kolodziejski v. City of Phoenix ( 1970), 399 U S 204[1][2]
