Sample Ballot Addressing

Testing continues as we near our April 10th start date for addressing over 1.5 million sample ballots.  We are focused on our workflow, data verification and logistics - preparation is key for this project.

Ballot Assembly

Assembling the June Primary ballot includes hundreds of complex inputs, including complicated candidate rotations, translations and meticulous proofing.  We will be sending files for printing shortly.

Anaheim Youth in Government Day

In 1969, the City of Anaheim started a program called Youth in Government Day to provide high school students with firsthand knowledge of city government operations and its impact on people's daily lives. We are excited to participate in the event and help advance the program’s goal of increasing civic engagement and awareness of the important functions carried out by city government logistics, which takes place on April 23rd in Anaheim.
