California Elections Data Archive (CEDA)

The California Elections Data Archive (CEDA) is a joint project of the Center for California Studies, and the Institute for Social Research (ISR), at the California State University, Sacramento, and the office of the California Secretary of State. The purpose of CEDA is to provide researchers, citizens, public agencies, and other interested parties with a single repository of local election data. CEDA includes candidate, and ballot measure results for county, city, community college, and school district elections throughout the State. Election data from county election offices and websites are collected and these local election results are entered into an electronic CEDA database. This database is used to generate three standard CEDA reports: 1) County Elections: Candidates, ballot designations, and vote totals for all elected county offices; vote totals and text for county ballot measures. 2) City Elections: Candidates, ballot designations, and vote totals for all elected city offices; vote totals, and text for all city ballot measures. 3) Community College and School District Elections: Candidates, ballot designations, and vote totals for all elective community college and school district offices; vote totals and text for all district ballot measures. Ballot measures for all jurisdictions are coded according to type (e.g., charter amendment, taxes, bond measure, initiative, etc.) and to topic (e.g., education, public safety, governance, etc.). Election data and reports have been archived annually since 1995.
