A City of Garden Grove Term Limits, Measure Q ballot question was on the November 4, 2008 ballot for voters in the City of Garden Grove in Orange County, California, where it was very narrowly approved.

Measure Q changed the way that term limits work for members of the Garden Grove City Council. At the time of the vote on Measure Q, if a city council member had served two consecutive terms on the city council, he or she was required to take a four-year absence from holding office as a city council member before he or she could run again for the city council.

The approval of Measure Q made it so that city council members only have to take a two-year break from office before they are allowed to run for office after having previously served two consecutive terms.
