About This Election

On Tuesday, November 7, 2000, millions of Californians will head to the polls to cast ballots in hundreds of contests. Polls open at 7 a.m., and close at 8 p.m. Voters who aren't sure they can make it to the polls should sign up to get an absentee ballot so you can vote by mail. For more information about voting in California, see the California Voter Foundation's "Voting Questions and Answers".

What's on the Ballot?

In the 2000 General election, we have a Presidential election, eight state propositions, one U.S. Senate seat up, 52 contests for the House of Representatives, and 100 legislative contests. Depending on where you live, and when your city or county conducts elections, you may have local races and measures on your ballot as well.

Getting Started

Every registered voter should receive an Official Sample Ballot in the mail, which is sent to you by your county election office. This booklet includes an application for an absentee ballot, and tells you which political districts you live in and where your polling place is located. California voters also receive an official Voter Information Guide from the Secretary of State that features information on the state propositions and much more. These two official booklets provide the basic information you need to prepare to vote. If you haven't received these booklets in the mail, contact your local county election office.
