CITY OF RIVERSIDE—Would amend the Charter of the City of Riverside to require the City Council to appoint to fill a vacancy in elected office with up to one year remaining on the term, to call a special election to fill a vacancy with over one year remaining on the term, to call a special run-off election when no candidate receives a majority of the votes cast for the vacant office, and to prohibit appointed officials from referencing "incumbent", "member of the City Council", or other designation indicating incumbency in a future election for the same seat. Measure Q requires simple majority (50% + 1) to pass.
Fiscal Impact: Would be the cost of calling each special election, which is currently estimated at $63,000.
