LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2294, as introduced, Fletcher. Initiative and referendum petitions: circulation requirements.
Existing law authorizes a person who is a registered voter or who is qualified to register to vote in this state to circulate an initiative or referendum petition anywhere within the state. Existing law requires that each section of an initiative or referendum petition bear the name of a county or city and county, and allows only qualified registered voters of that county or city and county to sign that section of the petition.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to these provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 9021 of the Elections Code is amended to read:

Each section of the initiative or referendum petition shall bear the name of a county or city and county, and only qualified registered voters of that county or city and county may sign that section.
The circulator may sign the section he or she is circulating, as provided in Section 106.
