Your vote matters for several reasons. First, California’s nonpartisan blanket primary passes the two candidates with the top vote totals to the November election, regardless of party. Secondly, if one candidate receives over 50% of the vote in certain Primary elections then there is no November election. Those races include San Diego County Board of Supervisors, Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk, and Superior Court Judges.

California’s Primary Election for United State Senator and Congressional Representatives, Governor, Lt. Governor, and other State offices is June 5. Other State offices up for election include State Assembly (all districts), Secretary of State, Attorney General, and more.  Local government offices included in this Primary Election include Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk, District Attorney, Sheriff, Treasurer, and some Superior Court Judge seats.
