"NONE OF THE ABOVE" BALLOT OPTION. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Provides that in general, special, primary and recall elections for President, Vice President, United States House of Representatives and Senate, Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Controller, Secretary of State, Treasurer, Superintendent of Public Instruction, Insurance Commissioner, Board of Equalization, State Assembly and State Senate, voters may vote for "none of the above" rather than a named candidate. Votes for "none of the above" shall be tallied and listed in official election results, but only votes for named candidates will count for purposes of determining the election result. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: This measure could result in minor costs for the state and for county governments to modify their vote-counting and election-reporting procedures as a result of adding the choice of none of the above to candidate election ballots.
