Thank you for visiting the JoinCalifornia political archive. Since 2004, has grown into the largest online archive of California election results. We work continually to keep our candidate biographies updated with current information. Our records currently include state legislative races since 1898 and federal offices going back to 1849. This information includes 13,816 candidates running in 25,300 races in 524 elections.

As always, please keep in mind that this is a work in progress and we always appreciate you letting us know if anything doesn't quite look right.

Thanks again for visiting,

The One Voter Project
