Full Voter Participation Measure

Ensures big decisions are made by a majority of voters

San Diego County’s current system allows candidates to win elections in the June primary, when as few as 20 percent of voters participate. This measure would ensure final decisions on candidates are made in November, when as many as 80 percent of voters cast ballots.

More Voters = Better Decisions

Consistent with the city, state and federal election process

The FVPM would use the same top-two runoff process we use to elect the Governor, state legislators, and members of Congress, and big cities such as San Diego and Chula Vista, eliminating confusion caused by using a different process for county elections.

Gives voters - not special interests - the power to decide

Protects taxpayers

As a savings to taxpayers, in the event that there are only two eligible candidates for a county office, the June election would be eliminated and the election would be in November

Ensures important decisions are made when most people vote

Democracy functions best when the most people vote, and that is in November.
