NOTE TO CANDIDATES
The 2002 California Election Calendar is intended to provide general information about the nomination and election of candidates and placement of ballot measures onto the ballot which the Secretary of State certifies for the ballot, and does not have the force and effect of law, regulation or rule. It is distributed with the understanding that the Secretary of State is not rendering legal advice and, therefore, the calendar is not to be a substitute for legal counsel for the individual, organization or candidate using it. In case of conflict, the law, regulation or rule will apply. Unless otherwise indicated, all code section references are to the California Elections Code.
