Improving Voter Rolls

Earlier this week we released our report on our efforts to improve the quality of voter data. We are the only California county to take a new approach to the age old problem of moving voters.

Poll Worker Trainers Heading to Class

Our poll worker trainers have finished their in-house training and will be heading to one of a dozen remote training sites on Monday, where we will begin the process of training thousands of poll workers.

Quality Assurance Team Critical

Several years ago we instituted quality assurance teams to ensure there are no errors in ballot delivery. Making sure the correct ballot is sent to the right voter is critical and is a part of our daily operation.

Sample Ballots Online

Voters can access their sample ballot online by visiting our new voter portal. This portal allows a voter to enter private, identifying information, which will then display their voter info. This includes their registration info, ballot info, elected officials, polling place and their sample ballot. This portal can be accessed by hovering over any tab on our new website.
