Calaveras Works Towards New Voting Process

Calaveras Works Towards New Voting Process

Calaveras County is following the lead of Amador and Tuolumne Counties, by working towards adopting a new voting process.  Yesterday, the Calaveras Registrar of Voters office announced they have decided, to adopt the Voter’s Choice Act Election Model in time for the 2020 elections.  Back in 2002 state law was amended, allowing voters to permanently register as voters by mail (VBM); since then the number of VBM voters in Calaveras County has steadily grown to now encompass nearly three-quarters of its registered voters.  The 2016 passing of the Voters Choice Act (SB 450), authorized all counties to conduct any election by an all-mailed ballot with vote centers, beginning next year.  Last year, the process was successfully established in five pilot counties, Sacramento, Madera, Napa, Nevada, and San Mateo.
