Calaveras Public Forum On Voters Choice Options

Calaveras Public Forum On Voters Choice Options 

Calaveras County election officials will hold a public forum later this week to discuss implementing the Voter’s Choice voting options.  The meeting is set for Friday at 10 a.m. at County Library in San Andreas.  Calaveras Registrar of Voters Rebecca Turner notes that the county’s draft Election Administration Plan (EAP) released Aug. 9 outlines how it intends to facilitate an All-Mail/Vote Center election along with various changes in policy and procedure that would accompany the transition.  Passed in 2016, the law, also known as SB 450, authorized all counties, beginning next year, to conduct any election by an all-mailed ballot with vote centers.  The process was successfully established last year in five pilot counties, Sacramento, Madera, Napa, Nevada, and San Mateo.   Amador County election officials, who also chose to join more than a dozen other counties to enact the new voting process options ahead of the 2020 Elections, began gathering public feedback last month and are scheduled to hold another forum next Thursday, the 19th.   More information on the new system is available from both the Amador and Calaveras county election department’s websites.
