Referendum Costs Month/Year Election Type Question Length
Nov-24 General Referendum Standard
The Secretary of State's budget includes sufficient funds to accommodate one ballot of average length for the general election in November. If the number or size of the referendum questions requires production and delivery of a second ballot, an additional appropriation of $266,000 may be required.
Fiscal Detail and Notes
This amendment will make the provisions of the bill contingent upon approval by the voters at a referendum. Because this vote will not occur until November 2024 and the Gambling Control Unit will delay rulemaking until after the referendum, appropriations and allocations are removed from fiscal year 2024-25 and any revenue impact will be delayed until fiscal year 2025-2026, contingent on the referendum results.
