It has become apparent that most, if not all, ballot types in Orange County will stretch to 3-pages (unlike 2016 when most ballot types were 2-pages).
The reason for this is pretty straightforward - for instance:
  • There are 27 candidates for Governor
  • There are 11 candidates for Lt. Governor
  • There are 8 candidates for Secretary of State
  • There are some Assembly and Senate contests with 10 or more candidates
  • There are some Congressional contests with 15 or more candidates

Combine this with countywide contests, state propositions and local contests and you end up with a lengthy ballot. This will also change the amount of postage required to return a ballot - from $.50 to $.71.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is asking employers to remind employees to do a “ paycheck checkup ” to make sure they are having the right amount of tax withheld. The new tax law adopted in December 2017 could affect how much tax employees should have their employer withhold from their paycheck. Click here to learn more.
