Election 2020: How To Use The KPBS General Election Voter Guide

A look at the Election Center page in the KPBS Voter Guide for the November 2020 general election.

As mail-in ballots are making their way to the hands of voters, KPBS is launching its online Voter Guide to help voters make sense of the issues on the ballot.

The guide has information about your polling center, where the candidates stand on issues affecting the community, and what different propositions and measures aim to change.

It’s the same guide you’ve known and trust, but we made some improvements to improve your user experience.
