WILL THERE BE RAIL ON BALLOT BY PETITION MECHANISM?
Since the City Council took a position it does not want to put rail on the ballot this election- to let you decide, to let you have the final say, you have the opportunity to override the council and put rail on the ballot by petition.
The question to voters would need to propose that the "All Fixed Guideway" is being prohibited. If the majority for example, voted yes to prohibiting the "All Fixed Guideway," this would stop the rail project and render HART null and void. To get to that point, a petition would have to be turned in to the City Clerk by June 26, 2012 and contain 46,650 valid signatures.
To initiate a Special Election, 69,675 valid signatures would have to be presented to the City clerk.
