SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- The 2020 Presidential Primary is fast approaching, and on top of selecting presidential candidates, several other measures are set to appear on the ballot.

On March 3, 2020, polls will open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.

Below are several of the measures and propositions on the March 2020 ballot:

Proposition 13

Prop 13 authorizes bonds for facility repair, constriction and modernization at public preschools, K-12 schools, community colleges and universities.

San Diego city council approves $1.9 billion homelessness plan
Hotel tax hike, city auditor measures placed on March 2020 ballot

Measure C – Hotel Tax Increase

The San Diego City Council voted in early November to place the measure on the March 2020 ballot.

The hotel tax hike would fund a convention center expansion, homeless services and infrastructure improvements.

The tax increase would raise the city’s transient occupancy tax from 10.5 percent to as high as 15.75 percent in certain areas. Supporters say it could raise $6 billion over 42 years.

Those opposed argued the measure should be placed on the November 2020 ballot, when voter turnout is expected to be higher.
