California Voter Foundation (CVF) debuted the Fall 2010 edition of its
California Online Voter Guide to help Californians prepare to vote in
the November 2 election. The guide is online at www.calvoter.org.
California voters face a long and complex ballot. With eight statewide
offices on the ballot, one U.S. Senate contest, nine statewide
propositions, plus legislative, congressional and local races, a
typical voter will confront at least twenty voting decisions this
To help with that daunting task, CVF has produced a new edition of its nonpartisan California Online Voter Guide, serving as a "one-stop shop" to help voters sort through the state and federal contests.
CVF’s guide serves as a directory for all state and federal contests,
and features all candidates, their party affiliations, contact
information and links to campaign web sites. On the propositions,
voters will find nonpartisan information from the official State Voter
Information Guide, news articles, campaign information and resources to
help them follow the money and find out who’s behind the campaigns.
Also available on CVF’s web site is a "Voting FAQ", contact information
for county election offices including direct links to county voter
registration status lookup tools where available, and information about
voting systems and voting by mail. Many voters do not realize that
elections are administered at the county level. Our site helps direct
voters to the government agencies that can best help them when they
need to verify their registration status, locate their polling place or
get answers vote-by-mail questions.
CVF published the first edition of the California Online Voter Guide
in 1994; the guide is now in its 20th edition. The California Voter
Foundation is a nonprofit, nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization advancing
the responsible use of technology to improve the democratic process.
