Text of measure
Path to the ballot
The "Aftermath" section is only required when an event happens following an election. For example, the need for "Aftermath" section may be triggered by:
- a lawsuit
- a change to the measure
- a referendum
- impact once implemented
The section may consist of only one event or may become extremely complex with a variety of subsections. It all depends on the events that occur. For example, a measure that is legally challenged following a vote may include subsections within the "Aftermath" section called: "Lower court upholds measure," "Supreme Court upholds lower court decision," "Measure repealed," etc.
NOTE: If it relates to another measure, bill, or article that we have a page on, make sure to add a wikilink to that page.
Below is an example of an "Aftermath" section for a local ballot measure article:
