The documents attached are FINAL.

Public Inspection Period: Pursuant to the Elections Code, the county elections official shall make a copy of arguments, analyses, rebuttals and ballot materials for measures on the ballot available for public examination in the county elections official's office for a period of 10 calendar days immediately following the deadline for submission of those materials. Original documents will be on public display at the Elections Department, 701 Ocean St., Room 210, Santa Cruz.

Any person may obtain a copy of the materials from the county elections official for use outside of the county elections official's office. The county elections official may charge a fee to any person obtaining a copy of the material. The fee may not exceed the actual cost incurred by the county elections official in providing the copy.

During the 10-calendar-day public examination period provided by this section, any voter of the jurisdiction in which the election is being held, or the county elections official, himself or herself, may seek a writ of mandate or an injunction requiring any or all of the materials to be amended or deleted. The writ of mandate or injunction request shall be filed no later than the end of the 10-calendar-day public examination period.

A peremptory writ of mandate or an injunction shall be issued only upon clear and convincing proof that the material in question is false, misleading, or inconsistent with this chapter, and that issuance of the writ or injunction will not substantially interfere with the printing or distribution of official election materials as provided by law.

The county elections official shall be named as respondent and the person or official who authored the material in question shall be named as real parties in interest. In the case of the county elections official bringing the mandamus or injunctive action, the board of supervisors of the county shall be named as the respondent and the person or official who authored the material in question shall be named as the real party in interest.

Lettering of Measures

Measures will be assigned a letter by the County Clerk after 5 p.m. on August 6, 2010.

Letters designating measures will be assigned by the elections official pursuant to Elections Code 13116. Letters will be assigned after the close of consolidations, which occurs 88 days before the election. Measures will be assigned in alphabetical order, in the order that they appear on the ballot, beginning with the letter following the last letter assigned in the previous election and continuing through Z, or as close to the end of the alphabet as possible to accommodate all measures filed for the current election. For example, if the previous election ended with measure V, and five measures are on the next ballot, the measures will be assigned A, B, C, D, E rather than W, X, Y, Z, A.

For districts that overlap into other counties, the lead county will assign a letter designation for the measure. The letter assigned to these measures may not be in alphabetical order.

Measures will appear on the ballot in the following order pursuant to Elections Code 13109: County Board of Education, College, Unified Schools, High Schools, Elementary Schools, County, Cities, Districts. In order to allow for the most efficient use of space, the county elections official may vary the order of the measures.
