Alameda County Tax Associa
tion Makes Strong Appeal
to Voters
Provisions of Three Amend
ments Held as Injurious and
Costly to Residents
OAKLAND, Oct. -'7.— An appeal to the
voters of the state to vote against the
three measures at the November elec
tion, which make possible the creation
of a registrar of voters in Alameda
county, has been issued by the Tax
association of Alameda county. The
association is s permanent organiza
tion formed by leading business and
professional men for increasing the
efficiency of government at lower cost.
At the las* regular session of the
legislature three acts were passed
which purport to make it possible for
the counties of a certain class to have
a registrar of voters and fixes the com
pensation lor him and his assistants.
These acts since have been placed
before the electorate by referendum
petition and appear on the November
ballot as the third, fourth and iifth
They are the only ones appearing by
virtue of the referendum and comprise
two new sections to the political code,
to he known as 414 De and 414f»f. and
amendments to section 4232 and to sec
tion 4013.
The Tax association says such acts,
if passed, will saddle an additional ex
pense on .the tax payers of Alameda
county without say direct benefit, and
are in themselves special legislation.
The appeal in part follows:
"The tax association recommends
that the voters of this state vote
against the three measures dealing
with registration because, in practice,
the matter involved is special legisla
tion and applies only to Alameda court
ty. Further, it does not cure any of
the existing evils so necessary of cor
rection and increases the cost of reg
istration in Alameda county without
any resulting benefit.
"Registration, as conducted under
the existing laws, is tainted with po
litical activity, is disgracefully inef
ficient, and needs complete reorganiza
tion. Until some measure is passed
by «he legislature correcting com
pletely existing conditions, the tax as
sociation recommends that the present
method of registration be continued
rather than substitute a law or laws
that in no wise betters the present
system and in reality increases the
cost in the one county actually af
fected IV the operation of the pro
posed plan.
"In presenting the recommendation
tv the electorate that it vote 'No'
against the three measures on the bal
lot by referendum petition the tax
association pj'eeents the result of sev
eral months' study and investigation.
"The new law changes nothing now
in force. There remains the supervisory
as election commissioners, the same
system of registration, and the same
conflict of respective authority of su
pervisors and the county clerk at pres
ent and the registrar of voters in the
"Tlie compensation in every county
but Alameda is prohibitory and forces
the respective supervisors to continue
the county clerks in their present
duties. There would thus be but one
registrar appointed in California, that
for Alameda county. The compensa
tion fixed for the registrar in this
county and his chief deputy is ex
cessive. In San Francisco county, with
a population in 1910 of 416,000, the
salary of the registrar is $2,400 and
his chief deputy $1,800. In Alameda
county, with s population of 246,000
in 191". the proposed salary for the
registrar is $:j.OOO and for his chief
deputy $1,800."
