Referenda approve or modify campus compulsory fees that are allocated to specific purposes, as outlined in the specific measure. Each measure requires a simple majority (50% + 1) to pass, however the measure will automatically fail if less than 33% of the eligible voting pool for a given measure cast a ballot. Each measure contains a Return to Aid component, which sets aside 33% of the fee to help financial aid students afford the fee.

There are five measures on the 2010 Campus Elections ballot:

  • Measure 42 (U, G) – Increase University Library Hours of Operations
    • Measure 42 will temporarily raise student fees by $6.50 per student, per quarter for three years. The fee will be spent expanding hours and services to the library. The fee would begin in fall 2010 and end in summer 2013.
    • YES: A vote of yes will expand library hours to 8 a.m. to midnight on Sunday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday. If the library’s budget is cut further, the new fee will be used to continue hours to balance future cuts. The measure will add 33 hours per week to the libraries’ current operating hours. If passed, the measure will raise the quarterly undergraduate student registration fee by $6.50.
    • NO: A vote of no will result in a continuation of the current library hours — open from Sunday to Thursday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and on Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The library will remain closed on Saturday. Future campus budget cuts may reduce current library hours and services.
