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 three Congressional, seven state Senate and eighteen Assembly districts will be open seats in 2016; districts where the incumbent will not be seeking reelection due to term limits, retirement, or giving up the seat to run for another office.

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.


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 will be published during this election cycle: 2015 Spring Edition (now in print); 2015 Fall Edition; 2016 Primary Edition; 2016 General Election Edition; and 2016 Post General Election Edition.
