CA Elec Code Section 13260

In approving ballots and ballot cards, the Secretary of State shall not give his or her approval unless the following are true:


The size, shape, and texture of the ballot card are suitable for use in the automatic device in which it is intended to be placed.


The ballot cards are so designed that they can readily be arranged with a section or ballot stub containing the serial number of the ballot and a section with places for the voter to slot or punch holes indicating his or her choices of candidates and votes on measures.


If the ballot is to consist of two or more series of cards, appropriate provision may be made for identifying the related series which comprise the ballot.
