What is an Open Primary?
For state elections, California holds an open primary, which means you don’t have to vote along party lines. If you are a registered Democrat you can vote as a Republican and vice versa. This change happened after after voters passed the California Top Two Primaries Act. Now the top two candidates regardless of party will be up for election in November. We could see two Democrats or two republicans running for Governor, instead of one Democrat and one Republican. Although for Presidential primary elections you still have to vote along party lines. Watch the video for a quick and simple explanation.
California's primary election is on June 5. To learn more about the candidates click here.
