A Note From The Registrar Of Voters

Image of the Registar of Voters, Courtney Bailey-Kanelos.

​​​On behalf of the County of Sacramento Voter Registration and Elections department, I am delighted to promote education in Sacramento County.

As public servants, my staff and I strive to ensure secure, accurate, and transparent elections.  Each election is a process owned by you, the voter, and it is designed to be observable by all members of the public.  From testing the voting equipment prior to an election to our post-election audit, we follow strict processes to safeguard the integrity of the voting process and make sure the results are accurate.  We welcome everyone to take part.

It takes thousands of dedicated County staff, volunteers, and community partners to conduct each election.  We ask for your help by sharing the information provided by our department to ensure all voters know their voting options, and that they are welcome to observe and participate in every aspect of the election process.

In Partnership,
Courtney Bailey-Kanelos
