Misconception Monday – Elections

Hello, and welcome to Episode 6 of my Misconception Monday series. In this series of podcasts, I identify and dispel common misconceptions that are related to the many aspects of the California legislative process. You can revisit my previous Misconception Monday posts here.

In today’s podcast, I discuss some common misconceptions about elections in California. Some of the misconceptions include when the general election is held statewide for Legislators; the signature threshold for statutory initiatives and constitutional amendment initiatives; and which bills enacted by the Legislature, and signed by the Governor, are subject to referendum.
