The current cost of the CA Recall election
(from the Sec. of State's election website:
http://www.ss.ca.gov/elections/faq_statewide_special.ht...

What is the cost of the statewide special election?
According to information received from California's counties, the current estimated county cost of conducting the October 7, 2003 statewide special election is between $42 million and $55 million.

In addition, the state will incur costs of approximately $11 million to provide California's 15.3 million registered voters with the state voter information guide.

Therefore, the total estimated cost of the October 7, 2003 statewide special election is $53 million to $66 million.*

(*The estimated cost of the October 7, 2003 statewide special election is based on data supplied by California's 58 counties. Counties revised earlier cost estimates to reflect increased costs due to:

No consolidation of the October 7, 2003 statewide special election with the existing local elections scheduled for November 4, 2003.

Increased postage, staff overtime and printing costs, and other factors, resulting from a compressed election schedule.)
