Why Should I Vote in the June Election?

There

may still be some voters who consider a June Primary as something they can

“skip” and wait for the November election. It’s important for all voters to know that our choices in June will

determine what we see on our November ballot. Every election counts just as every vote counts!

What is a "Top Two Primary"?

California’s “Top Two

Primary” means more choices for all voters, regardless of party

preference.  It also gives all voters a say in deciding which candidates advance to the November General Election.  Learn more about the “Top Two Primary”.

  • In the June

    Primary, all candidates for Congress, statewide executive offices, and the

    California Legislature are listed on the same ballot regardless of their party

    preference.
  • You can vote

    for any candidate regardless of what party preference you indicated on your

    voter registration form.
  • The two

    candidates receiving the most votes -- regardless of party preference -- move

    on to the general election.

What if I don't vote in June?

Not voting in the June Primary is like “leaving your vote on the

table”. We encourage all voters to use

the power of your voice and your vote into the voting booth

June 3. You can register to vote online by May 19 to vote on June 3.
