San Francisco Department of Elections Certifies Stop Youth Vaping Ballot Initiative for November 2019 Ballot

Coalition campaign submitted signatures have been certified by City officials

San Francisco, CA — The Coalition for Reasonable Vaping Regulation announced today that the San Francisco Department of Elections has certified the submitted ballot initiative signatures, clearing the way for a November 2019 vote on the Stop Youth Vaping Act.

The Coalition submitted 20,302 ballot initiative signatures on July 2, 2019, which were collected over a record-setting nine days.  The Department of Elections, which had a 30-day window to review and certify the signatures, provided certification July 10, 2019.

“We are pleased to be included on the November ballot so the people of San Francisco can have their voices heard,” said Nate Allbee, Coalition communications director. "This initiative will bring the strongest regulation for an age-restricted product in the City – more than alcohol and other tobacco products. We are confident voters do not want to ban the best mechanism for quitting smoking while leaving cigarettes, the leading cause of preventable death in the U.S., on the shelves. These regulations are the best way to stop youth vaping.”

The Department of Elections will assign a ballot letter to the proposition for the November ballot on August 12, 2019.

The Coalition for Reasonable Vaping Regulation is an alliance of San Francisco residents, businesses, and community leaders who believe in common sense regulation preventing youth access and preserving adult choice. The coalition was created in response to a proposed ban by the City of San Francisco on the sale of vapor products. This ban would be harmful not only to adult choice, but also to the city’s economy. The coalition provides a platform for concerned residents, business owners and community organizations so that we can take strong actions to further fight underage use while still preserving access to products that can help adult smokers switch from cigarettes.
