Social media is contributing to a rise in election misinformation nationwide.
ColoradoBoulevard.net is helping you get the facts:
Voting for President
Registered with a Party
If you are registered with the Democratic Party, Republican Party, American Independent Party, Green Party, Libertarian Party, or Peace and Freedom Party, you can only vote for that party’s presidential candidates.
Registered as No Party Preference (NPP)
NPP is the second largest registration in California behind Democrats and ahead of Republicans.
If you are registered as NPP and you are voting for U.S. President from the Democratic Party, Libertarian Party or American Independent Party slates, you need to request a primary election ballot:
- Vote by mail:
Request a ballot from your county elections office.
- Vote at the Polls:
Request a ballot when checking in at the polling place.
If you are registered as NPP and you are voting for a presidential candidate from the Green Party, Peace and Freedom Party, or Republican Party, you must re-register with that specific party.
There’s just one measure on California’s March primary ballot: Proposition 13, School and College Facilities Bond. It should not be confused with the historic property tax measure from the 1970s often referred to as Prop. 13.
Proposition 13 authorize $15 billion in general obligation bonds for school and college facilities, including $9 billion for preschool and K-12 schools, $4 billion for universities, and $2 billion for community colleges.
Presidential candidates’ names on CA ballot
According to the Secretary of State’s office, the order in which candidate names appear on the ballot is determined by a random alphabet drawing that is open to the public. Candidate order is then rotated by each Assembly District to prevent any candidate from having an unfair advantage.
All provisional ballots are carefully checked by county elections officials to confirm that the person who voted provisionally is registered and did not cast a ballot by mail or at another polling location on Election Day, according to the Secretary of State’s office.
Voting Centers will be open across L.A. County from Feb. 22 – March 3. You may vote any day during that period at any Voting Center convenient for you.
