District 4 Supervisor Karen Mitchoff

Hello and welcome to the District IV website! As your County Supervisor, I was elected to serve the diverse communities of Clayton, Concord, Pleasant Hill, part of Walnut Creek, and the unincorporated Contra Costa Centre.

District IV is located in the beating heart of Contra Costa County. We have seen great transformation in our communities in a few short years, as innovation, prosperity, and new residents join us in the shadow of Mt. Diablo. Mindful of these developments, it is my core focus to build policies that best serve you, my constituents in District IV, and our neighbors across Contra Costa.

I am committed to better connecting the people of Contra Costa County with the vital services of government, and advocating for policies that will help our communities grow and prosper. 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Karen Mitchoff

Bay Area Election Officials Join Forces to Assure Public Trust in Elections                                 

Local election officials are your trusted source of non-partisan election information. 

The Registrars of Voters around the bay have created a greater Bay Area coalition to deliver accurate, current, and transparent election information to our nearly five million voters. Our goal is to highlight the security surrounding elections, including the audits we conduct to assure accurate and secure elections. 

We are seeking partnerships with journalists, reporters, and community groups to help us deliver accurate, non-partisan, and timely information regarding elections. 

Democracy is fragile and public trust in elections is essential to, and the hallmark of, a well-functioning system of government.                  

Ongoing disinformation campaigns misguide the public with unfounded claims regarding the certified systems we use to conduct accurate and transparent elections. These malicious efforts erode voters’ trust, faith, and confidence in elections and may dissuade voters from participating in future elections.                                        

Your local county election official is your trusted source of legitimate election information. If you hear questionable claims regarding an election, reach out to your local elections office, so we can clarify it for you. You can also refer to our website and follow our official accounts on social media. For more information, visit our website; BayAreaVotes (www.sccvote.org/bayareavotes) or our Facebook page; Bay Area Votes.
