San Mateo County
California Voter's Choice Act

Mail

San Mateo County

The California Voter’s Choice Act (VCA) is landmark legislation which fundamentally transforms the manner in which elections will be conducted in the State of California. San Mateo County is proud to be one of 14 counties authorized by the State to conduct elections under the new law.

On September 12, 2017, the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors authorized the Chief Elections Officer to proceed with the implementation of the Act and conduct the June 5, 2018 Statewide Direct Primary Election as the first election held under the California Voter’s Choice Act.

The California Voter’s Choice Act changes the traditional polling place election model to an All-Mailed Ballot/Vote Center model with ballot drop-off locations. The primary goal of this new legislation is to expand accessibility and voting opportunities for all voters, particularly those with disabilities, visual impairments and language minorities.

The California Voter’s Choice Act requires all counties conducting elections under the Act to develop a Draft EAP and a detailed Voter Education and Outreach Plan.

A Public Hearing was held on Thursday, January 18, 2018 in the County Board of Supervisors Chambers located at 400 County Center, Redwood City for the public to comment on the County’s Draft EAP and the Voter Education and Outreach Plan.

The public was invited to view the Draft EAP and the Voter Education and Outreach Plan online. Public comment for the Draft EAP closed on January 18, 2018. The Chief Elections Officer took all comments into consideration in creating an Amended Draft EAP and Voter Education and Outreach Plan.

The Amended Draft EAP and Voter Education and Outreach Plan is posted online. A 14-day public comment period ended on March 15, 2018.

The Final EAP was adopted on March 16, 2018.  The Secretary of State approved the Voter Education and Outreach provision of the plan on March 30, 2018.
