Who is responsible for conducting City elections?

The City Clerk and the Orange County Registrar of Voters jointly conduct elections for the City of Santa Ana.  The Clerk’s staff advises candidates about procedures; accepts and maintains campaign statement reports; provides voter registration forms; maintains precinct information; and provides maps and instruction manuals to candidates.  The Registrar of Voters prints the ballots and voter pamphlet, trains poll workers, administers elections at the polls, counts the ballots, and certifies the election results. The City Council approves the election results and the City Clerk swears in the new Council members and the Mayor.
