Secretary of State Random Draw
A critical tool to determine the order of candidates on the ballot is the Secretary of State’s random draw.
Orange County Random Draw
The random draw conducted by the Orange County Registrar of Voters will determine the order of candidates running for the offices of Members of the State Senate and State Assembly when the district is located within more than one county.
SD29 Random Draw
In accordance with Elections Code section 13112(d), the Secretary of State’s office conducted a drawing of the letters of the alphabet to determine the randomized alphabet for use in the above election. Listed below is the official order of letters for use in determining placement of candidates’ names on the ballot.
Please note that this alphabet is to be applied THROUGHOUT the candidate’s entire last name, so if more than one candidate’s surname begins with the same letter, the second letter of the surname determines who goes first, according to where the second letter of the name appears in the random alphabet. For example, if two candidates with the surname of Campbell and Carlson are running for the same office, their order on the ballot will depend on the order in which the letters “M “ and “R” were drawn in the randomized alphabet drawing.
