Ballot Printer Certification

Under California Code of Regulations sections 20200 to 20267, certification by the Secretary of State is required to print ballots for use in California elections. County elections officials, who are responsible for designing their own ballots, can then contract with any certified printer prior to each election. For further information, please contact the Secretary of State's office at (916) 695-1680 or email votingsystems@sos.ca.gov.
