More from Measure A
Mailer mix-up and final results
More than a week after the June 7 election, Chico residents were still receiving mailers about Measure A. A mix-up at the U.S. Postal Service’s West Sacramento sorting center was to blame, according to a Chico Enterprise-Record report.
Measure A, the sole item on the June special-election ballot, aimed to move Chico City Council elections from November to June. More than 16,000 people—nearly 38 percent of registered voters—cast their ballots, and of them, 67.68 percent voted against it, according to the final results posted on the Butte County Elections Division website.
The mailers that were delivered late were both in favor of and against Measure A, not just on one side. Stephanie Taber, the woman behind Measure A, told the E-R she did not think the misdirected mailers affected the outcome of the election.
