A Message from Secretary of State Kevin Shelley
Regarding Principal Voter Information Guide

Dear Fellow Voter,

On November 2, 2004, we will have the right and the privilege to choose our next President of the United States and make many other important decisions about the future of California.

This will be one of the most significant elections in many years. And your vote could make the difference. We all know that many recent elections have been decided by just a handful of votes. Please make sure your voice is heard by voting on or even before November 2nd.

We understand that getting to the polls on Election Day is not always easy. One of the easiest ways to have your voice heard is to vote by mail!

This year, you can also become a Permanent Absentee Voter for any reason. That way you will be able to vote by mail automatically in every election. You can apply for an absentee ballot right now by visiting our website at www.MyVoteCounts.org or by contacting your local elections officials.

This year’s Voter Information Guide also has a new section devoted to election technologies. This guide explains the voting system that will be used in your county. Please take a moment to learn about the voting system in your area—as it could have changed since the last election. You can also find more information on voting systems at www.MyVoteCounts.org.

This year, make your voice heard. Vote by mail, or vote on November 2nd, but please make sure your vote is cast.

Regarding Supplemental Voter Information Guide

Dear Fellow Voter:

This is the “Supplemental” Voter Information Guide. It contains important information on measures that were placed on the ballot too late to be included in the regular Voter Information Guide. Please make sure you have both Guides.

This will be one of the most significant elections in many years and your vote could make the difference. We all know that many recent elections have been decided by just a handful of votes. Be sure to make your voice heard by voting on November 2nd.

One of the easiest ways to make certain your vote will be cast is to vote by mail. This year, you can also become a Permanent Absentee Voter. By applying for a permanent absentee ballot you will be able to automatically vote by mail in every election. You can apply for an absentee ballot right now by visiting our website at www.MyVoteCounts.org or by contacting your local elections official. Don’t delay. The last day to apply for an absentee ballot is October 26th, but to make sure you receive your ballot in time you should apply as soon as possible.

Remember, you’re a Californian—your vote counts!
