About Us

Future of California Elections (FoCE) is a nonpartisan nonprofit network. Our organization brings together a diverse set of stakeholders, including elections officials, civil rights organizations and election reform advocates to examine and address the unique challenges facing the State of California’s election system.

Since its formation in late 2011, FoCE Members have worked on numerous issues to modernize elections and expand participation of the California electorate including online voter registration, modernizing voter registration at the DMV, the California Voter’s Choice Act, and Same Day Registration to name only a few policy issues.

FoCE Members aim to:

  • Inform the development of effective elections policy and regulations that reflect the needs of voters and the practicalities of implementation;
  • Help implement new policies through effective administration and public outreach;
  • Support local elections officials to identify and adopt “best practices” that can improve voter participation;
  • Cultivate/maintain broad support for election reforms among the public and advocacy community

FoCE members include: ACLU of California, Asian Americans Advancing Justice-California, California Association of Clerks and Election Officials, CALPIRG, California Common Cause, California Voter Foundation, Disability Rights California, League of Women Voters of California, NALEO Educational Fund, MALDEF, Rock the Vote, and Verified Voting.
