ALLIANCE FOR A BETTER DOWNTOWN MILLBRAE v. WADE, A099453

A city elections official's role in certifying an initiative petition is confined to the ministerial task of examining the petition for compliance with submission requirements. Thus, the official does not have authority to refuse to certify an initiative petition based on extrinsic evidence relating to the manner of its circulation.
