CVF Election Announcements

Voter hotlines, online reporting of election problems

There are several phone and online resources available for the public to use to get assistance on Election Day, report problems and voting experiences, and track reports of problems submitted by voters from around the nation. This link provides a rundown of the services available.

California Voters Have the Right to Cast a Paper Ballot

Thirty percent of California voters live in counties that will use paperless, electronic voting machines in polling places on Election Day. New voting security rules allow voters who are concerned about e-voting security to cast a paper ballot at the polls. The ten counties where e-voting machines will be used are Alameda, Merced, Napa, Orange, Plumas, Riverside, San Bernardino, Santa Clara, Shasta and Tehama. The California Voter Foundation (CVF) is urging voters to exercise their right to cast their ballot on paper, because the electronic voting machines produce results that cannot be publicly verified.

Top 25 E-Voting Places to Watch

Electronic voting systems will be used in an estimated 25-29 percent of the nation on November 2. Overall, hundreds of jurisdictions will use electronic voting systems in 29 states. To make it easier for the public and the media to track electronic voting in this presidential election, this list identifies the 25 most populous places in the country using e-voting.
