Ballot Measure in California May be Removed from Ballot Because Summary of Measure is Two Words Too Long

The San Jose Mercury News has this story about a local ballot measure placed on the November ballot by the Santa Clara Valley Water Agency. Election laws say the measure’s description on the ballot cannot exceed 75 words, but the description submitted by the agency is 77 words. The Agency then tried to correct the problem, but has not been able to do so. Thanks to Around the Capitol for the link.
