Election Cost Estimates

The RR/CC has created an on-line Election Cost Estimate Application for jurisdictions to instantly calculate their own Election Cost estimates. The application calculates the total number of registered voters and permanent vote by mail voters in the specific jurisdiction to determine the estimated election cost.

***Please note estimating rates were revised effective 9/23/2021. If estimates were calculated prior to 9/23/201, we strongly suggest a new estimate be calculated.***

  • Actual election factors such as jurisdiction participation, number of pages, and the implementation of the new voting system (Voting Solutions for All People or VSAP), may significantly impact actual costs billed to participating jurisdictions.
  • Estimated rates are not fixed fees and are for estimating purposes only.
  • The prior estimating tool was based on a fee-based model that is no longer used.


View the Election Cost Estimate Application Guideline for quick assistance on how to use the application. If you need additional help, please contact the Election Billing Team at .


Please note that calculating an estimate using the Election Cost Estimate Application is not consent or agreement to hold, consolidate or provide support services for an election. Requests from jurisdictions for any election scenario must be received in the form of an adopted resolution or other official document and considered by the Board of Supervisors and Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk at the appropriate time. For more information, please contact the Election Information and Preparation Division at .
