more voters = better decisions
About the Full Voter Participation Act
Many San Diego County politicians stay in office for decades because they get re-elected in low-turnout primary elections. Measure D will promote more competitive elections and ensure officials are more accountable to ALL of their constituents.
Give Voters More Voice
Measure D would guarantee that our most important decisions are made in the November elections when almost 80 percent of people vote, rather than in June primary elections when as few as 30 percent do.
Close the County Loophole
Most San Diego County voters are unaware that our most important elections often end in the June primary because of an outdated election law that gives special interests more influence. Measure D closes the loophole.
Today, the County uses a different runoff process than we use to elect the Governor, state legislators, members of Congress, and City of San Diego officials. Measures D eliminates voter confusion caused by using a different process for County elections.
Let’s make sure our important decisions are made when most people vote. Democracy functions best when the most people vote, and that is in November.read the full measure
