A Riverside No Pension Changes Without a Public Vote, Measure L ballot proposition was on the November 2, 2010 ballot for voters in Riverside County.[1] It was approved.

Measure L prevents the Riverside County Board of Supervisors from changing the county's pension system for public safety employees without a public vote.

Measure L is supported by the Riverside Sheriffs Association. This is a union of the county's sheriff's deputies.

Measure L was in opposition to Measure M.

Both competing measures received a majority vote, but Measure M received a higher number of affirmative votes than Measure L.

Election results

  • Yes: 230,552 (52.72%) Approveda
  • No: 206,767 (47.28%)

Election results are from the Riverside County elections division as of November 24, 2010.

A simple majority vote was required for approval. However, the fact that competing Measure M received more affirmative votes than Measure L may mean that where the measures conflict, the provisions of Measure M will go into effect rather than those of Measure L.

Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Measure L: Shall the proposed Ordinance, requiring voter approval for increases or decreases in public safety employee retirement or pre-retirement death benefits and requiring that the County of Riverside continue the current CALPERS (California Public Employee Retirement System) retirement formula, be adopted?[2]
