SB 1061 – Amends The Time Period By Which A Special Election Must Be Called Following A Special Election Request And Requires The Cost Of The Election To Be Included In The Petition
This bill applies to school district and community college district elections. It amends existing law and requires that following a provisional appointment, if the registered voters of the district petition for a special election, the special election petition must contain the cost estimate expressed on a per-pupil or per-student basis.
SB 1061 also amends the time period by which an election shall be ordered by the county superintendent of schools. The bill requires the special election to be conducted not less than 88, nor more than 125 days following the order of the election, except the bill provides for one exception. An election may be held within 180 days if it is being consolidated with a regularly scheduled election.
