Welcome to the
2015- 2016 Election Cycle
Why do so many of California’s major corporations, labor unions, professional trade associations, political action committees (PACs), broadcast and print media, universities and libraries, along with elected officials, legislative advocates, political consultants and pollsters subscribe to the California Target Book?
View partial list of subscribers
Established in 1993, the California Target Book gives non-partisan, unbiased information to all who want to be kept fully informed and up-to-date on congressional and state legislative election campaigns in California.
This online edition includes a district-by-district coverage of each of the eighty assembly, twenty odd-numbered state senate and fifty three congressional districts up for election in 2016, along with district maps, vote histories, party registration, minority voter registration, as well as profiles on likely and potential candidates in the June 2016 Top Two Primary.
A minimum of seven state senate and 16 assembly districts will be open seats in 2016 due to term limits or the incumbent giving up the seat to run for a higher office.
The Target Book is also reporting on the heated special election campaign in the 7th Senate District that will be held May 17 to fill the unexpired state Senate term of Mark DeSaulnier, who was elected to Congress last November.
Subscribers also have access to the HOT SHEET, which keeps subscribers informed on breaking political stories and the continuing activities of candidates, political parties and legislative leaders.
HARD COPY EDITION
Many subscribers, at additional cost, desire to also receive the hard copy edition of the Target Book, an abridged version of the online edition, which includes vote histories, voter registration data and candidate profiles.
Five hard copy editions are published during this election cycle: 2015 Spring Edition (now being prepared); 2015 Fall Edition; 2016 Primary Edition; 2016 General Election Edition; and 2016 Post General Election Edition.
