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


In order to view or print the document, 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.
