Article 3. Request By Petition of California Public Utilities Code >> Division 10. >> Part 7. >> Chapter 2. >> Article 3.

Instead of a resolution, a petition may be presented to the board of supervisors signed by voters within Marin County equal in number to at least 25 percent of the total vote cast at the last general election.
The petition shall contain substantially the same declarations and statements required to be contained in the resolution adopted by the board of supervisors under this chapter and declare that, in the opinion of the petitioners, public interest or necessity demands the creation and maintenance of the transit district.
The petition may be on separate papers, but each paper shall contain the affidavit of the person who circulated it certifying that each name signed thereto is a true signature of the person whose name it purports to be.
The County Elections Official of the County of Marin shall compare the signatures to the petition with the affidavits of registration and certify to their sufficiency or insufficiency.
