This is the ranked choice vote for the GPCA to take a position on Proposition 71: ACA 17 (Resolution Chapter 190, Statutes of 2017), Mullin. Ballot measures: effective date
The choices are to rank 'endorse', 'oppose', 'no position' and/or 'abstain.' Delegates can rank as many or few of these options in their order of preference.
An 'endorse' vote would mean the GPCA would endorse Proposition 71.
An 'oppose' vote means the GPCA would oppose Proposition 71.
A 'no position' vote means the GPCA would not take a position on Proposition 71.
An 'abstain' vote means the voter is not expressing a preference, but is voting to help achieve quorum.
Any of these position that receives 2/3 after all preferences are transferred is the position of the party. If neither 'endorse' nor 'opposes' receive 2/3, the GPCA's position will be 'no position'.
The proposition is listed below, along with the Legislative Counsel’s digest and a link to the full text.
ACA 17 (Resolution Chapter 190, Statutes of 2017), Mullin. Ballot measures: effective date
The California Constitution provides that an initiative statute, referendum, or constitutional amendment or revision approved by a majority of votes thereon takes effect the day after the election unless the measure provides otherwise. Existing law requires the Secretary of State to compile the results of all statewide measures, and to prepare, certify, and file a statement of the vote from the compiled results no later than the 38th day after the election.
This measure would instead provide that an initiative statute, a referendum, or a constitutional amendment or revision approved by a majority of votes thereon takes effect 5 days after the Secretary of State files the statement of the vote for the election at which the measure is voted on, and the measure clarifies that an initiative statute, referendum, or constitutional amendment or revision may provide that it becomes operative after its effective date. The measure would also make nonsubstantive changes to these provisions.
