Narrative Explanation of Fiscal Impacts:

Costs of the consolidated elections are shared among all entities involved.  Each jurisdiction requesting consolidation with the Presidential General Election will pay a pro-rata share of the costs associated with conducting the election, whether or not they appear on the ballot.  If there were no local jurisdictions conducting elections at this time, all costs for this election would be borne by the County of Sonoma only, with limited reimbursement from the State for some state-mandated services.
