Ballot summary

The ballot title read as follows:[1][2]

Amends Constitution: For certain initiative measures, ballot must contain measure's full text; text appears before other information.

Result of "Yes" Vote: "Yes" vote requires ballot for initiative measure of certain length (excluding any enacting/amendatory clause) to contain measure's full text, which appears before other information.

Result of "No" Vote: "No" vote retains existing law, which requires that certain types of explanatory information about a measure be included on the ballot for each initiative measure.

Summary: Amends constitution. Current law requires certain types of explanatory information (including, but not limited to, the caption and measure number) for all state and local initiative measures to be printed directly on ballot; does not require a measure's text to be printed on ballot. This measure applies only to initiative measures containing 100 or fewer words, not counting any enacting or amendatory clause in the measure. Requires that the entire text of measure be printed on the ballot. Requires text to be followed only by provision allowing for a "yes" or "no" vote. Requires other explanatory information about a measure, such as a ballot title, caption, or other information to appear after the "yes" or "no" vote provision on the ballot. Other provisions.
