Our New Web Presence!
The Yolo County Elections office was one of the first county elections offices in California to have a web site. The site has gone through many changes over the years, and we're proud of the latest version.
The new site has updated design and functionality. We hope you'll find it easier to use, and it will also be easier for us to keep it up-to-date and add new information. Since it's easier to update, we'll also be able to keep more information online, including archives of ballots and candidate filings.
We know that you'll be using the site from phones and tablets, and the new design should work better on small screens.
We've paid great attention to usability and accessibility, and hope that the site will be easier to use for persons using screen readers or other assistive devices. That's an ongoing effort, so please let us know where we can improve.
The search facility is much better, and will search the election result archives as well as other pages. We've also reorganized the site structure for faster navigation.
The site's 558 pages of election-return archives cover 17 years. The oldest item is Davis' Richards Boulevard Upgrade referendum of March 4, 1997, which includes what may be California's first live returns map.
The site update was implemented in the open-source Plone Content Management System by Reid-McMahon, LLC and based on a design by Truman Consulting Services. It's hosted by the Davis Community Network.
