LIMITING TERMS OF ELECTIVE OFFICE. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Precludes from appearing on ballot names of candidates for any elective office in California which that candidate has held, or but for resignation would have held, during seven of the preceding nine years. Permits such candidates to run as write-in candidates. Exempts judicial, federal, and elective offices already subject to term limits by the California Constitution. Applies only to candidates whose terms commence on or after January 1, 2000. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: This measure would cause the Secretary of State to incur probably minor costs to track the length of terms for all elected officials to enforce the term limit requirements. To the extent that more voters use "write-in" voting for candidates affected by the measure, the measure could result in unknown, but potentially significant, election-related costs to local governments.
