State Voter Information Guide vs. County Voter Information Guide

If you are a registered voter, you will receive two information resources by mail:

 

cover page of state voter information guide

 

Your State Voter Information Guide contains information about federal and statewide candidates and statewide ballot measures. The State Voter Information Guide is only mailed prior to a statewide election.

cover page of county voter information guide

 

Your County Voter Information Guide (previously known as a “sample ballot”) contains a sample of your ballot and information about local candidates and ballot measures, and, for some counties, the location of your polling place. A County Voter Information Guide is sent prior to statewide and local elections.
