Ballot Simplification Committee - November 2014

These summaries, or “digests,” are printed in San Francisco’s Voter Information Pamphlet, which is mailed to every registered voter before the election.

                                Meetings begin: Monday, July 28, 2014 
                                Completion deadline: Monday, August 11, 2014
