Attorney General No.
Secretary of State No.
INITIATIVE/REFERENDUM PETITIONS. INTERNET POSTING. INITIATIVE STATUTE. A proponent may request the Attorney General to post an initiative/referendum petition on the Internet. With specified exceptions, the Internet and non Internet petitions for an initiative/referendum shall contain the same information. The Attorney General shall require a nonrefundable fee to defray the cost of posting Internet petitions. A person who wishes to sign an Internet petition may contact the county election officer to obtain a signature postcard. The county election officer shall verify the requester's voter registration. Unregistered requesters shall receive a voter registration application along with a signature postcard. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: This measure would have no state costs because the measure provides for all reasonable costs to be recovered through fees. However, the measure would have unknown, but probably minor, county administrative costs related to the petition signature cards.
