Preliminary Fiscal Impact Statement
Minor savings - General Fund
Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill would change the process to get certain county offices on the general election ballot from nomination by primary election to nomination by petition, thereby reducing the number of offices on the primary ballots and the number of ballot styles needed for each party. This would result in minor General Fund savings not requiring any change to the budget to the Bureau of Corporations, Elections and Commissions for ballot printing costs.
