Senate Bill 423 authorized counties to implement the Voter’s Choice Act (VCA) model for the November 3, 2020, election. San Benito County conducted its election in compliance with SB 423. The Election Administration Plan (EAP) provides the formal guiding outline for the future of voting and elections in San Benito County.
The plan is a framework for the campaign to meet its goal of informing San Benito County’s approximately 37,000 voters of the upcoming changes and transition to the vote center model. It incorporates the feedback provided by hundreds of voters and community advisory committees. The Election’s Office will implement a comprehensive voter education campaign ranging from expanding our social media presence, partnerships with high schools and institutions of higher education, and collaborations with elected officials and government agencies.
As San Benito County transitions to the vote center model, the Election’s Office remains committed to our mission to provide election services for the citizens of San Benito County to ensure equal access to the election process, protect the integrity of votes, and maintain a transparent, accurate and fair process.
