Secretary of State No.
ELECTIONS. REAPPORTIONMENT. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Provides that districts for election of Congress, the State Senate and Assembly, and Board of Equalization shall be drawn by the Secretary of State based solely upon population determined by census divisions designated by the federal Census Bureau. Provides that the population of each district for Congress, each district for State Senate and Assembly, and each district for Board of Equalization shall not vary more than 1% from the average population of all districts of that type. Districts shall be drawn without regard to party registration, voting history, race, sex or national origin. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: This measure would result in costs to the state, probably up to several hundred thousand dollars once each decade, for the Secretary of State to establish the boundaries. This initiative would also result in unknown, but probably minor, savings to county governments by repealing the mandate that they compile and submit specified electoral data to the Legislature once each decade.
