Want to get a head start studying up on the two statewide initiatives on this fall’s General Election ballot? Don’t know anything about the five non-binding advisory votes on the Legislature’s revenue bills that passed last session? Our Election Division has lots of useful voter information to help you be ready when you vote.
The 2013 General Election Video Voters’ Guide is now available. Jointly produced by our Elections Division and TVW, the video guide includes information about Initiative 517 (dealing with initiatives and referenda) and I-522 (labeling of genetically engineered foods), as well as video statements by a proponent and opponent of each measure.
Our Online Voters’ Guide for the General Election is available on our Elections Division homepage. It includes helpful information on I-517 and I-522, Advisory Vote 3 through 7, special Senate races in the 7th, 8th and 26th districts, and two multi-county Court of Appeals races.
You can log onto MyVote for voter info or to register to vote or update your registration. Remember that Oct. 7 is the deadline for online registration or updates before this fall’s General Election.
The print version of the statewide Voters’ Pamphlet will be mailed to each household in mid-October, about the same time ballots go out. Ballots must be postmarked by Nov. 5 or placed in a county dropbox by 8 p.m. that evening.
