More than a print and supplies shop, Martin & Chapman Co. separates itself from its competitors by being able to provide the election law answers you need. On any given day our team answers ten to hundreds of California election law questions. We are committed to your jurisdiction and its continued success, because your success is always our priority.
We're here to help you stay out of the newspaper headlines. Sometimes small mistakes can mean big consequences and our goal is to make sure you get the correct information every time. We want you to avoid situations that sometimes lead to a loss of confidence with voters and supervisors. We want to make sure you give your constituents the right information, stay out of court, and that your resolutions, forms, and notices are correct and on time. Two events happen every year, one is new election legislation, and second is case law brought on by litigation. We keep track of both to make sure you get the most up to date information.
