Pamphlet: Ballot Measure Activities and Public Resources
Understanding the Rules of the Road


As important as ballot measures are in the creation of public policy in California, public officials face important restrictions and requirements on what may be done with public resources relating to ballot measure activities.

This free, downloadable pamphlet explains these restrictions in plain language. 

Local officials are welcome to print out the pamphlet to prevent missteps in this area. Penalties for such missteps can be severe.
