A California Referendum on SB 202, the Ballot Proposition Votes Only In November Act (#11-0047) failed to qualify for the state's 2012 ballot.

11-0047 was an attempt to use California's veto referendum process to overturn California Senate Bill 202 (2011).

Ballot title:

Referendum to Overturn Changes to Ballot Measure Elections.

Official summary:

"If signed by the required number of registered voters and filed with the Secretary of State, this petition will place on the statewide ballot a challenge to a state law previously approved by the Legislature and Governor. The law must then be approved by a majority of voters at the next statewide election to go into effect. The law would limit statewide initiatives and referendums to November general elections or special elections, no longer including primary elections, and move the vote on proposed changes to California's budget reserves to November 2014."

Path to the ballot

To qualify for the ballot, sponsors of 11-0047 would have had to collect 504,760 signatures by January 5, 2012.

The letter requesting a title and summary for the proposed referendum was signed by Charles H. Bell, Jr., and was received by the Attorney General of California on October 7, 2011.
