CACEO Election Cost Project Moving Forward

CACEO applied for and was awarded a grant from the James Irvine Foundation to collect information about how much elections cost in California. Collecting costs from counties is the main function of this project. Having a deep history of this data will allow us to have hard data when talking to legislators about new ideas (bills) for policy and process changes in election administration. We hope you will participate in this important project.
