Voting Research Guide

The College of Marin librarians have created an online Voting Research Guide to help you research everything on your 2020 ballot. Use the tabs in this guide to find voter information, California and Marin County ballot initiatives, information about parties and candidates, and tips for understanding how to think critically about the news. Don't wait until the last minute, set aside some time to research your ballot prior to election day, November 3, 2020!
