2024 Amended Draft Election Administration Plan (Renewal)

Under the Voter's Choice Act (Senate Bill 450, 2016), counties must renew their Election Administration Plan publish the draft for public review, and submit the Plan to the California Secretary of State. Section 4005(b)(10)(G) of the California Elections Code requires counties to hold public meetings to update or revise the Election Administration Plan using the same process of public engagement used when adopting their original Election Administration Plan.

The Yolo County Elections Office's Election Administration Plan (EAP) was approved by the California Secretary of State in 2022. Under California State law, counties must consider revising the Plan based on resident feedback, experiences, and suggested best practices within two years of the adoption of the original EAP. Below you will find the amended draft based on suggestions from public meetings, public comments, and the Public Hearing that was held on August 10, 2021.

On August 25, 2023, the Yolo County Elections Office published the Amended Draft EAP and a Public Notice regarding the availability of the Amended EAP for a 14-day of the amended draft of the 2024 Election Administration Plan. The "redline" amended draft is linked below.
