Customized Sample Ballot

We strongly encourage everyone to go to and print a Customized Sample Ballot for yourself. At the main screen, you will see a “Poll” icon, and a link to Find Your Poll and Ballot for the Election. The customized sample ballot will show exactly what you will see when you go to vote. All races and propositions across the County that do not apply to your Precinct will not be shown on your customized sample ballot. This simplification greatly helps in understanding exactly what races and propositions apply to the Precinct in which you reside.
