A San Francisco Change in the Number of Signatures Required to Recall City Officials Act, Proposition E ballot question was on the November 4, 2008 ballot in San Francisco, where it was approved.

San Francisco is a charter city/county. As such, it has the right to set its own requirements for procedures regarding the recall of its local elected officials, including the number of signatures required to force a recall election.

The State of California has signature requirements for local recall elections that apply to all general law cities in the state. Proposition E changed the number of signatures required to recall local elected officials so that its requirement conforms to the state's signature requirements for petitions.
