Landlords “No Rent Control” Petition Signatures Found To Be Insufficient

The Alameda County Registrar of Voters has disqualified a local landlords "no rent control" signature petition.

The Alameda County Registrar of Voters has disqualified a local landlords “no rent control” signature petition.

Last week, the Alameda County Registrar of Voters completed its detailed examination of petition signatures for a landlord sponsored “no rent control” ballot measure and found them insufficient, disqualifying the measure for the ballot.

The registrar’s certificate, issued July 28th, found that the petition contained 5,928 valid signatures from qualified registered voters within Alameda, some 533 short of the needed 6,461 signatures, representing 15 percent of 43,073 registered voters.

The finding means that measure, which would have barred rent control in Alameda, will not make it to the ballot.

City officials had reserved time to consider the petition on a rare August council meeting next week, in the event that the petition qualified for the ballot. However, with the petition disqualified, there is no item for city council to review.

However, Alameda voters will still be able to weigh-in on two other rent control measures this November.
