What is on the ballot?

Tuesday, November 4, will be the California General Election. On the ballot are all statewide elected officials, as well as Piedmont’s representatives in the United States Congress, the State Assembly, and on the boards of several special districts, including EBMUD, BART, and AC Transit. Also on the ballot are several statewide measures, at least one countywide measure, and one City of Piedmont measure.

Piedmont’s Ballot Measure GG

The Piedmont City Council placed Measure GG on the ballot. This measure modifies the City Charter in two ways. First, it would move the date of the City’s General Municipal Election from February to November. Second, it would change when the Piedmont Unified School District Board of Education annually elects its President and Vice President. To read the staff report describing the effects of the measure as well as its full text, click here. The measure needs a simple majority to pass.

If you have any questions regarding Measure GG, contact the City Clerk’s Office at (510) 420-3041.
