VOTE

The California Primary Election is scheduled for Tuesday, June 3, 2014. Many have already voted by mail or will vote early at designated locations, but for those who have not yet cast their vote or intend to visit the polls, the following is a list of offices, local candidates, propositions and measures that have been submitted to voters for approval. As an informed voter, please visit voter websites to view the qualifications of candidates and provisions of propositions and measures. Remember, a new election system, ÒTop Two,Ó is now in effect.

In June 2010, a ÒTop TwoÓ primary system was instituted for statewide offices. This means that all candidates are listed on the ballot regardless of political party. The top two candidates - no matter how many candidates are listed - receiving the most votes will advance to the General Election in November. Hence, two candidates from the same political party may appear on the General Election ballot. The offices affected by the top two process are: United States Senators, Congressional Representatives, State Senators, Assembly members, Governor, Lt. Governor, State Treasurer, Secretary of State and State Attorney General.
