A slate mailer is a publication created by a campaign or for-profit consulting service that is mailed to voters and that contains lists of candidates or ballot measures, along with recommendations and endorsements.[1]

Slate mailers are most common in California.

California regulations

In 2011, the California Fair Political Practices Commission established some new rules regulating slate mailers in the state.

The new rules require:

  • Disclaimers printed on the slate mailers must be written in plain language and in color.[1]
  • Slate mailers must disclose paid endorsements that are purchased by someone other than the candidate or ballot measure committee.[1]
