Secretary of State’s CALVOTER

The Secretary of State also has voter file information available for purchase. The file is distributed on a CD in a plain text-file format (tab-delimited.) The first record contains field headings to interpret the data. It can be ordered for voters statewide or by specific counties or districts.

Please be advised that each county is actually responsible for maintaining its own voter registration data. The currency of the data in the statewide CALVOTER database varies from county to county as not all counties update us on a regular basis. Therefore, the counties are always your best source for the most current data.

For more information, please contact Bruce McDannold, Calvoter Administrator, at (916) 6572602 or by email at bmcdanno@ss.ca.gov or Cathy Ingram-Kelly at (916) 651-8975 or email ckelly@ss.ca.gov
