- Term limits ballot measure at a glance
Current ordinance: No one may serve more than two four-year term on the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors or the county Board of Education.
Proposed change: Extends the two-term limit to three terms. The three-term limit is a lifetime limit, so Supervisors Ken Vogel and Larry Ruhstaller would not be able to run for 12 more years after their terms expire in 2014, according to County Counsel David Wooten.
Election: Nov. 6.
Cost to taxpayers to conduct election: Between $100,000 to $135,000, according to Registrar of Voters Austin Erdman.

Since 1998, no one has been allowed to serve on the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors for more than two four-year terms. However, a majority of the current board wants to change that.
The Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 last week to place a measure on the November ballot asking voters to allow supervisors to serve a third term.
