In 2012, the UCLA Online Campaign Literature Archive team started using WAS [Web Archiving Service] to capture elections for local, state, and federal offices affecting the Los Angeles area, as well ballot measure websites from California state and local Los Angeles area elections.
They have now gone live with the collection: http://webarchives.cdlib.org/a/uclacampaignlit
