Announcement

Sacramento County has implemented a new voting process where a voter can come to the county election office, request a ballot and have the ballot printed on the spot. This new early voting system could potentially save the County thousands of dollars by avoiding pre-printing thousands of ballots used in the early voting period. The new system of ballot-on demand could be used to eatablish county-wide voting centers able to serve voters from all precincts. This innovative idea may make early voting more accessible and less expensive to operate.

Announcement

Santa Clara is the first county in the country to accept voter registration forms completed and signed using a new technology developed by Verafirm. Voters filled out and signed registration forms using an electronic-signature pad  and the County accepted the forms.  Verafirm, a California Company, is developing the technology that they believe will be much more user-friendly than filling out a paper form, especially for young voters. Other counties may follow.
