The Berkeley Election Reform Act has specific requirements with regards to Mass Mailings. If a campaign communication meets the definition of a Mass Mailing in BMC Section 2.12.150, a certification form and three copies of the mailing must be filed with the City Clerk.
The mass mailings index on this website is a comprehensive listing of these mailings, including date mailed and a brief description of the mailing. Hard copies of mass mailings are on file in the Office of the City Clerk, 2180 Milvia Street.
The blank Mass Mailing form is available below.
