Following a public, random drawing held June 6, CalPERS announced the order in which names will appear on the official ballots for the fall election to fill two CalPERS Board of Administration seats.
Candidates for position “A:”

Candidates for both seats are elected by, and represent, all CalPERS members including retirees and those still active in the workforce from State, school and public agency employers. CalPERS members active as of July 1, 2013 and retired members with an effective retirement date on or before July 1, 2013 are eligible to vote. Ballots will be mailed to eligible voters on Aug. 30. Voting period begins on Aug. 30 and ends Sept. 27.
Voted ballots must be postmarked or received by CalPERS in the postage paid envelope, or another comparable envelope by Sept. 27, 2013 in order to be counted.
The reverse side of the postage paid envelope must be signed by the member who voted. For comparable envelopes, the words “CalPERS Ballot Enclosed” should be boldly printed on the outside of the envelope and MUST BE SIGNED by the member who voted.
The member’s signature certifies under penalty of perjury that they are eligible to participate in the election and that they personally voted and placed the ballot in the sealed envelope.
