(1)Existing law prohibits an elections official, in any county in which only the incumbent has filed nomination papers for the office of superior court judge, to place the incumbent’s name on the ballot unless, within 10 days after the final date for filing nomination papers for the office, a petition indicating that a write-in campaign will be conducted for the office and signed by 100 registered voters qualified to vote with respect to the office is filed with the elections official.

This bill would revise the signature requirement for that petition to 0.1% of the registered voters qualified to vote with respect to the office, provided that the petition contains at least 100 signatures but need not contain more than 600 signatures.

(2)Existing law requires every person who desires to be a write-in candidate and have his or her name as written on the ballot of an election counted for a particular office to file a statement of write-in candidacy that contains specified information.

This bill would require that a statement of write-in candidacy for any of several specified local offices also include a statement that the candidate meets statutory and constitutional requirements for that office as described in a specified statute. Hide
