The new Office of Government and Community Relations has developed an online resource to help educate voters on the numerous propositions on this year's ballot. As you may know, there are 16 different state propositions as well as 29 additional propositions on the ballot within the various regions of San Diego County. Residents of the City of San Diego, for example, will vote on the 16 state propositions, 2 county propositions, and 8 city propositions.
Full text, information and nonpartisan analysis on all of the propositions can be found at http://gcr.ucsd.edu/vote.htm. Analysis of the state measures is provided by the state Legislative Analyst's Office, while information on local/regional measures is provided by impartial city and county attorneys. The University of California, San Diego has not taken formal positions on any of these propositions.
I urge all registered voters to participate in the upcoming election, which offers vigorously contested races at the federal, state, and local levels. In accordance with university policy, any campaign or election activity by UCSD employees is to be conducted on personal time and not as a representative of the university.
If you have any questions about the upcoming election or any of the propositions, please feel free to contact my office at 858-534-8400.
