Elections Task Force, IRV highlight next SD Common Cause meeting

This coming Saturday, August 12, there will be a San Diego Common Cause meeting at the Mission Valley library. There will be a panel discussion about the San Diego Elections Task Force.

The Elections Task Force was formed by the City Council and is comprised of 9 members of the public and city staff. Since February, the Task Force has been evaluating election-related topics that would help improve the way the city of San Diego runs elections.

The Task Force has already completed a report on mail-only ballot elections, and will also consider issues such as instant run-off voting, voter outreach, ballot tabulation, and public financing of elections. These are exciting issues that may change the way San Diego conducts elections.

Panelists include:
Liz Maland, San Diego City Clerk and Task Force Chair
Sharon Spivak, Deputy City Attorney
John Kern, Task Force Public Member
Charles Imes, Task Force Public Member
