Propositions are state proposals and measures are local proposals, the registrar’s office told the district.
When voters began receiving sample ballots this month, they noticed that the district’s $40 million bond bid is Prop Q on the ballot and Measure Q in the Voter Information section.
“Ramona voters should keep just one thing in mind as they approach the polls,” Superintendent Dr. Robert Graeff wrote on the district’s Facebook page. “…Prop Q and Measure Q are the same exact initiative in support of the Ramona Unified School District. In short, Q = Q.”
