COST OF PRINTING
CANDIDATE'S STATEMENTS

 

SUBMIT CANDIDATE’S STATEMENT IN AN ELECTRONIC FORMAT AND RECEIVE A $25 DISCOUNT!!

 

The Elections Department encourages candidates to submit their statements on a 3 " computer diskette or sent via e-mail to gail.pellerin@co.santa-cruz.ca.us

  • ONE signed hard copy must be filed by the deadline.
  • Format all text flush left and execute and save italics and bullets within the file.
  • Discounts will only be provided to those candidates whose files can be read by the Elections Department’s computers. If elections staff have to type the statement, the discount will not apply.

PAYMENT: The statement may be paid for by check made payable to the County Clerk or cash if the candidate is using personal funds and will not be reimbursed through the committee. The fee shall be paid at the time candidates file their Declarations of Candidacy if the candidate wants to have a statement printed in the Voter’s Information Pamphlet.

If the Candidate's Statement is withdrawn by 5 p.m. on August 14 (or by August 17, if there is an extension) the fee will be refunded in full.

PRINTING IN SPANISH: Santa Cruz County is not required to print statements in a second language; therefore, any candidate wishing their statement be printed in a second language in Santa Cruz County's Voter Information Pamphlet will be required to pay double the amount listed. A facsimile copy of the ballot with the ballot measures and ballot instructions printed in Spanish will be available at each polling place on election day and upon request by voters at no expense to the candidate. (14201)

OVERLAPPING DISTRICTS: When a district overlaps into another county, the candidate's statement shall be printed in each and every county in which the district lies. The candidate must write a separate check made payable to the appropriate county in the amount provided below to cover the cost of printing, handling and mailing the statement within the respective counties.

COST FORMULA: The cost of the Candidate's Statement is based on 200 words. It includes a flat fee of $108 for typesetting and page setup, plus $.005 per voter in the district for printing and $.005 per voter in the district for postage. Registration figures are based on the February 2000 report of registration. If the district has authorized a 400-word statement, candidates will be charged double for statements with 201 to 400 words. Candidates who submit their statement in a readable electronic format will receive a $25 discount.

The difference between the estimated costs and the actual costs will either be refunded or billed to the candidate following the election.
