Opting Out of California’s New Ballot Transparency Law

Marin Independent Journal reports:

AB 1416, which became effective in January, requires that the supporters and opponents of statewide and local measures be listed on ballots. However, the law allows counties to opt out of participating.

On Tuesday, Marin County supervisors voted 4-1 to do just that, at least for the 2023 and 2024 election cycles. Supervisor Mary Sackett cast the dissenting vote.

The majority chose not to follow the recommendation of the county’s election advisory committee, which voted 6-4 to recommend implementation of the law.
