Four ballot measures, Measures H, I, J and K, relating to city elections and governance, were on the June 5, 2012 ballot for voters in the City of Ridgecrest in Kern County.[1]

Measures H, I and J were approved. Measure K was defeated.

The four measures had to do with:

  • Measure H: Whether a term limit of eight (8) consecutive years should be imposed on the mayor and members of the city council.
  • Measure I: Whether the mayor should be directly elected by the city's voters. At present, five city council members are elected, and they then choose which of them will be mayor. With the approval of Measure I, however, going forward the city's voters will elect four city council members and will also directly elect a mayor.
  • Whether the term of the mayor should be two years (Measure J) or four years (Measure K).
