Protecting Voter Rights for San Diegans

Lawsuit seeks to get San Diego parcel tax for libraries, parks on November 2024 ballot

Supporters of a proposed parcel tax that would raise money to upgrade parks and libraries in San Diego have filed a lawsuit as a last-ditch effort to get the measure on the November 2024 ballot.

The voting rights lawsuit says city and county officials improperly determined that supporters didn’t collect enough signatures in support of the measure, which would create a $250 million dedicated funding source for city parks and libraries.
