Voter Information

Like Smart Voter did in the past, Voter's Edge California provides unbiased, in-depth voting information on candidates and ballot measures. This year, we've added campaign funding info and a high quality Spanish translation to State and Federal races. Plus all of your trusted League Voter Service publications are on Voter's Edge California including the Pros & Cons and the Easy Voter Guide.

See more information on elections in California: preparing to vote, voting (in person, by mail, if you've moved), voting rights, take a friend to vote, results of past elections, etc.

Easy Voter Guide

The Easy Voter Guide is a newsprint pamphlet for new voters and busy voters. Its aim is to make nonpartisan information about the ballot accessible to as many Californians as possible.

It is distributed by the League of Women Voters of Alameda to 34 locations in Alameda, including libraries, schools, churches, and senior centers. It is also available online.

The publication is typically available in mid to late April before the June primary election and in mid to late September before the November general election.
