CITY OF OAKLAND—Would give the Oakland City Council authority to lower the voting age for Oakland school board elections from 18 to 16, and would not allow the City Council to change any other voter eligibility requirements under state law. Measure QQ requires a simple majority (50% + 1) to pass.
Fiscal Impact: Would have no immediate fiscal impact since this measure merely authorizes the City Council to adopt an ordinance allowing persons aged 16 and 17 to vote for the Office of School Director. Current estimates of the cost are $7,000-$10,000 in each cycle in which school board elections are held, but the actual costs would depend on the implementation of the ordinance.
