Measure A asks Del Norte County voters to offer their opinion on whether the Board of Supervisors should approve a declaration to withdraw from the state of California and form the state of Jefferson.

According to County Clerk Alissia Northrup, not reporting recent financial information can cause a candidate to be reported to the California Fair Political Practices Commission.
