So, you want to get elected to the Sacramento charter commission?

The question of whether to create an elected charter commission will appear on the November ballot, and, if a majority of city voters agree to it, they will also select 15 people to serve on that body. Commissioners will have up to two years to go through the city charter with a fine-toothed comb to suggest any additions, deletions or changes to the guiding document for the city.

So, just how do people interested in serving on the commission get their name added to the list of charter commission candidates on the November ballot?

First, make sure you’re eligible: Candidates must be at least 18 years old, United States citizens and registered to vote in Sacramento. Then follow the steps below. All information was provided by the Office of the City Clerk.Should you get enough votes, you’ll be one of 15 proud new members of the city’s charter commission. Enjoy it while you can – you’ll have lots of work to do.
