California: The California Association of Clerks and Election Officials (CACEO) has launched a website that allows people to see the actual costs of an election. “Election costs vary from county to county and this new website is designed to assist the public in understanding election costs throughout California,” Orange County Registrar of Voters and CACEO President Neal Kelley said in a statement. Visitors to the will be able to compare costs dating back to 2004 on everything from polling places to poll workers, ballot production to bilingual support.
