Who is the Community Voter Outreach Committee (CVOC)?
The Community Voter Outreach Committee (CVOC) is a partnership between
the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk and Citizen Community and Advocacy organizations.
Through the committee, citizens play an active and collaborative role in
working with County Election officials to ensure that elections are fair,
accessible and transparent for all voters. Since its inception in 1998 the
committee has been a model of citizen participation in government.
What is CVOC’s Mission?
The mission of the committee is to facilitate communication and collaboration
between the community and the Registrar of Voters about ways to educate,
engage and provide quality service to and ensure accessibility for all voters.
What do we do?

providing better services to voters with specific needs, voters with language
assistance needs, and in helping to disseminate information about important
election issues, such as, provisional ballots, translated election materials,

that will affect voters as a whole
