{{tnr}}'''California county election websites''' vary in the extent of information they make available to the public about [[local ballot measure]]s.
+
{{County website evaluations}}'''California''' has 58 counties and their election websites vary in the extent of information they make available to the public about [[local ballot measure]]s. 8 counties, or 14% of California's 58 counties, provide no historical election results at all for local ballot measures (as of early 2010), while tiny {{shasta}}'s website provides information about local ballot measures going back to 1970. Only Modoc County provides no election information for residents.
 +
 
 +
The County chart table below lists all of the counties in the state along with a simple evaluation of the county election website if available. For detailed information on how the Ease of Navigation number was calculated see: [[County election website evaluations|County evaluations]]. It should be noted that while most counties list no ballot information, at the time of the study the next big election will be in June therefore many counties will likely have ballot text closer to the election date. The table will be amended to reflect those changes if they occur.

* The extent to which county election websites display historical information is un-related to the population or budget of the county.  Two small counties, [[Shasta County, California ballot measures|Shasta]] and [[Tulare County, California ballot measures|Tulare]], have the most historical information. 
 +
* 32 counties provide historical information only for the last decade.
 +
* 18 counties provide pre-2000 information.
 +
* 8 counties provide no historical information.
 +
* 13 counties have information that only goes back as far as 2005.  Taking these counties together with those counties with no information, 21 counties (or 36% of California's county websites) provide either no information or only very recent information about local ballot measures.

California has 58 counties and their election websites vary in the extent of information they make available to the public about local ballot measures. 8 counties, or 14% of California's 58 counties, provide no historical election results at all for local ballot measures (as of early 2010), while tiny Shasta County's website provides information about local ballot measures going back to 1970. Only Modoc County provides no election information for residents.

The County chart table below lists all of the counties in the state along with a simple evaluation of the county election website if available. For detailed information on how the Ease of Navigation number was calculated see: County evaluations. It should be noted that while most counties list no ballot information, at the time of the study the next big election will be in June therefore many counties will likely have ballot text closer to the election date. The table will be amended to reflect those changes if they occur.

For information about local ballot measure information made available for specific contemporary elections, see:
