[ARCHIVED] Voter Information Guide Contains Error in Impartial Analysis for Ferndale’s Measure Q

Office of Elections

The Humboldt County Office of Elections has discovered an error in the Impartial Analysis by County Counsel for Measure Q in the Humboldt County Voter Information Guide for the Statewide General Election. 

The impartial analysis printed in the sample ballot states, “This means that a property assessed at $350,000 would likely have an annual tax obligation of $21 under this Measure.” The impartial analysis should read, “…an annual tax obligation of $210 under this Measure.”

While the impartial analysis contains an error in the Voter Information Guide, the ballot used to cast your official vote and other information related to Measure Q is accurate.

Measure Q is the Ferndale Unified School District Bond. Since Measure Q is not a countywide measure, this correction is for voters who reside in the Ferndale Unified School District. 

The Humboldt County Office of Elections is committed to ensuring that voters have accurate information when casting their vote. To make certain that voters are aware of the correction, the Ferndale Unified School District will be mailing a correction letter to registered voters who will be voting on this measure. Notification signs noting the correction will also be posted at all polling places where voters can cast a ballot on this measure.

The County of Humboldt apologizes any for confusion this may have caused voters. For more information, please call the Office of Elections at (707) 445-7481 or email
