California 2017 Ballot

Statewide and Local Sample Ballots In 2017

Sample ballots are specific to a given election district. They contain partisan and nonpartisan offices that may appear on a particular election's ballot. The Sample Ballot provides the order the contests and candidates will appear on the ballot. Most towns have only one sample ballot. However, there may be some municipalities with multiple ballots based on specific local races for an elected position.

Although sample ballots, in most states, are sent to voters in the mail, we would advise you contact your local election office for details on when you should expect to receive one in the mail.
