VoteCal Project

votecal-logo.gifVoteCal has been implemented to provide a single, uniform, centralized voter registration database that meets applicable Help America Vote Act (HAVA) of 2002 requirements. VoteCal’s many functions improve service to the voters of California by:

  • Connecting the Secretary of State and all 58 county elections offices together to improve the voter registration process
  • Providing a publicly available website which will allow voters to register online
  • Providing a single, official statewide database of voter registration information

VoteCal implementation began with five pilot counties (El Dorado, Mendocino, Orange, Sacramento, and Solano) beginning in July 2015. The remaining counties were grouped into a series of “waves”, and monthly wave deployments occurred from October 2015 to February 2016.  On September 26, 2016 the SOS declared VoteCal to be the official system of record for voter registration in the State.
