What started as a civil debate about a city ballot measure that would require mandatory runoffs in contested city elections turned into a tense battle.

None of the the panelists could agree on method or reason behind the need for changes in the electoral procedures.

San Diegans had voted for a new mayor, a city councilwoman, a state senator and an assemblywoman — mostly in separate special elections and all within 18 months.
Andrea Guerrero, executive director of Alliance San Diego, has another reason: she says people were unaware there was an election.
"In July, Alliance San Diego surveyed 1,000 voters in low-voting communities to ask them if they knew when the next election was and only a quarter knew," Guerrero said.Read more
