Election Administration Plan

In April 2019, the County of Santa Clara Board of Supervisors voted to adopt the Voter’s Choice Act (VCA). Under VCA the County is required to develop an Election Administration Plan (EAP) informing voters of the changes VCA brings. This includes information about services available at Vote Centers and Ballot Drop-off Locations, information specific to voters who primarily speak a language other than English, and information regarding accessibility options fo​r voters with disabilities. Voters will also be able to choose when, where, and how to vote. With input from county residents, the County of Santa Clara Registrar of Voters developed the EAP.​ 


Due to COVID-19, there will be a few changes to the final EAP plan and the ROV is accepting the public’s input on any concerns or feedback they may have from July 17, 2020 to August 16, 2020. All parties wishing to provide input can fill out a feedback form available on the ROV website or via email at: [email protected].​
