Election Administration Plan 

It is my pleasure to submit to you San Mateo County’s Final Adopted Election Administration Plan (EAP) for the administration of elections under SB 450, California Voter’s Choice Act (VCA).

San Mateo County’s EAP is the culmination of an extensive community review and input process spanning over the course of several months.  The plan was developed with the goal of providing the public detailed information on the administration of elections under the California Voter’s Choice Act.  It also incorporates the County’s Voter Education and Outreach Plan, outlining in detail the County’s voter education and outreach plans to increase accessibility to all voters, particularly voters with disabilities and language minorities.

The Final Adopted EAP was developed in consultation with members of the general public and the County’s Voting Accessibility Advisory Committee (VAAC) and Language Accessibility Advisory Committee (LAAC).  Additionally, the document incorporates comments received during the course of three public hearings specified by the Act.  All of the comments received during the public review process and those comments that were incorporated into the EAP, may be found in the section of the Plan entitled “Public Comments to Draft EAP and Responses.” 

The EAP has been formally submitted to the Secretary of State for final approval. The Secretary of State review and approval process will be completed by April 2, 2018.  Once approved by the Secretary of State, San Mateo County’s EAP becomes the official plan for the administration of elections under the California Voter’s Choice Act.

The EAP and Voter Education and Outreach Plan is available for review at:

I want to personally thank the voters of our county and all of our stakeholders that have participated in the development of the Voter’s Choice Act Election Administration Plan for their dedication and commitment to expanding voting opportunities for all. 

Please feel free to contact me or our staff at the Registration and Elections Division at 650.312.5222 or (redacted) should you have any questions regarding the Voter’s Choice Act or our EAP.

Sincerely,
