Referendum F updates the recall process for our state (including recall election for both state and local governments). It takes some of the provisions out of the state constitution and puts them into the statutes, where it will be easier to adjust them if necessary. Some of the deadlines are also adjusted to conform more closely to reality and what is feasible. This includes the deadlines for filing signature protests, for holding hearings on such protests, for fixing problems with petitions, and for holding the actual recall election. Looking through this, it seems like common sense changes.
Referendum G removes some obsolete text in the state constitution. Other than to history buffs, these provisions no longer apply today. And I assume that there are copies of older versions of the constitution being kept for historical purposes.
Vote YES on Referenda F and G.
