A Crescent City Mandatory Health Voucher Prior to Addition of Fluoride to Water Supplies, Measure A ballot question was on the November 6, 2012 ballot for voters in Crescent City in Del Norte County, where it was approved.

Measure A requires that before fluoride can be added to the city's water supply, any vendors that are seeking a contract to add it must provide toxicological reports, a list of contaminants and "proof that their product is safe and effective."[1] Supporters of the measure believe that these conditions cannot be met and that therefore, fluoride will have to be removed from the city's water supply.[2]

The victory on Measure A came two years after an effort to pass a similar measure, Measure A in November 2010, was defeated.
