2024 Initiatives, Referendums and Referrals

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A petition may be filed for any election. To ensure uniformity within a petition cycle and to avoid voter confusion, only one petition cycle will be approved for circulation during a two year period. Petitions for future elections may go through the sponsorship phase, obtain a ballot title and go through ballot title appeal process. Approval to circulate for the 2024 cycle will not be given until after July 8, 2022, the deadline to submi​t signatures for the 2022 General Election.
