§ 505.

TITLE AND LETTER DESIGNATION OF MEASURES

The Director of Elections shall determine the title and letter designation of each measure. The Director of Elections shall assign letter designations according to the procedures set forth in this Section.

First, bond measures shall be assigned letter designations. The bond measure involving the largest amount of money shall be assigned the letter designation “A.” The bond measure involving the second largest amount of money shall be assigned the letter designation “B.” This process shall continue until each bond measure is assigned a letter designation with successive letters of the alphabet.

Second, Charter amendments shall be assigned letter designations. The order of designation of Charter amendments shall be determined by random lottery.

This process shall be repeated until each Charter amendment is assigned a letter designation with successive letters of the alphabet.

If there are two or more Charter amendments that concern the same subject matter, the order of designation of Charter amendments shall be determined by random lottery with a limited exception. Once the first of the related Charter amendments is randomly selected and assigned a letter designation, the related Charter amendment(s) shall be removed from the lottery and assigned the next successive letter(s) of the alphabet. The random lottery shall then resume until each Charter amendment is assigned a letter designation with successive letters of the alphabet.
