State of the Inland Empire Series
California’s Voter Choice Act
A series of reports about the Inland Empire region of Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, which boasts a population of over 4.5 million residents. Future reports will include the State of Nonprofits, State of Civic Engagement and State of Health in the I.E.
This brief, coauthored with the California Civic Engagement Project is based on the findings of an extensive study of the five counties that adopted the VCA in 2018, and with the goal of informing VCA implementation in 2020 and beyond. This brief focuses on two questions: 1) How do election officials define a successful implementation of the VCA?, and 2) Which factors should county election officials consider when deciding to adopt the VCA?
