Downloading the Voter Guide

Explanation

This web site contains the entire contents of the 1998 Voter Information Guide and Ballot Pamphlet and the Supplemental Ballot Pamphlet (Propositions 1A and 11) in HTML (web page) format. It is designed to be viewed online, although most pages will appear acceptable when printed.

You may like to have an electronic copy of the original documents for yourself. The 1998 California Voter Information Guide and Ballot Pamphlet and the Supplemental Ballot Pamphlet are available here for downloading in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. If you download them to your computer, they will be stored on your local hard disk for later use. You will be able to view them and print selected pages at your leisure without reconnecting to this web site. When printed, the documents should appear identical to the printed versions mailed to all California registered voters.

Instructions

In order to view or print the documents, you will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader which is available for free from Adobe's web site. If you already have the Acrobat Reader installed on your computer, please ensure that it is at least version 3.0. You may not be able to view and print these documents properly with older versions of the software.

If you need to download the Acrobat software, you may do so now by clicking on the "Get Acrobat Reader" button near the bottom of this page. With most web browsers, a new browser window will open containing the Acrobat Reader page at the Adobe web site. This will allow you to continue browsing this web site while you are downloading the software. When the download is complete, follow the installation instructions provided by Adobe.

Please be aware that the Voter Information Guide is a rather large file - over one megabyte. On a slow modem connection, it may take anywhere from fifteen to sixty minutes to download depending on your Internet connection and current network conditions.
