Randomized Alphabet Drawing Results - June 7, 2022, Statewide Direct Primary Election

Randomized Alphabet Drawing to determine order of candidates’ names on the ballot. This webpage is under construction, but the results of the state and county randomized alphabet drawing are listed here.

In accordance with Elections Code section 13112(b)(1)(B), the Secretary of State's office and the Yolo County Elections office conducted a drawing of the letters of the alphabet on March 17, 2022 to determine the randomized alphabet to use for the order of appearance of candidates’ names on the ballot for the upcoming June 7, 2022, Statewide Direct Primary Election.  Listed below are the official results for the state alphabet drawing.

This randomized alphabet applies THROUGHOUT the candidate's entire last name first, followed, if necessary, by first name, then middle name. If more than one candidate's last name begins with the same letter, proceed to the second letter and, if needed, the third, etc. We follow this process until a different letter appears allowing us to determine who appears first on the ballot. For example, if two candidates with the last names Campbell and Carlson are running for the same office, their order on the ballot will depend on the order in which the letters "M" and "R" were drawn in the randomized alphabet drawing.
