The County Election Administration Plan
The Stanislaus County Registrar of Voters formally adopted California Voter's Choice Act (VCA) election model on January 26, 2022. Counties under the Voter's Choice Act are required to develop an Election Administration Plan (EAP). The EAP provides transparency and informs voters of the county's voter education and outreach plan. Further, the EAP details the services and information available at vote center and ballot drop box locations, and information specific to voters with disabilities and language minority voters.
Counties are required to update their EAP two years after the initial adoption. As part of the process, multiple public meetings will be held with community organizations and individuals that advocate on behalf of, or provide services to, the disabilities and language minority communities. The purpose of the meeting is for the public to provide feedback on the proposed EAP. Additionally, the Registrar of Voters office will schedule voter education workshops and attend various community events in an effort to provide education.
