Election Administration Plan for Yolo County

In order to adopt the Voter's Choice Act, counties must adopt an Election Administration Plan for public review and for submission to the California Secretary of State.

The Yolo County Elections Office's Election Administration (EAP) was approved by the California Secretary of State on March 7, 2022. This milestone is the culmination of a process of public engagement and review of statewide best practices that created a roadmap for implementing the Voter's Choice Act in Yolo County.
