Thanks for visiting! For the past sixteen years, this has been the political history project that just wouldn't end. We work continually to both build a better understanding of California's early political history as well as keeping up with current information.
Our records currently include state legislative races since 1898 and statewide and federal offices back to 1849. As of today, our records include information about 14,243 candidates, who ran in 26,021 contests in a total of 541 elections.
It's probably a good idea to keep in mind that records are really incomplete in the early years (1850s-1860s), and this is all a work in progress. We always appreciate you letting us know if anything doesn't quite look right.
