Do You Want to Vote for President in the Primary?

If you're not registered with one of the six qualified political parties in California, you might be able to "cross over" and vote in a qualified political party's presidential primary if that party allows it.
Info for Candidates
Nominations for all offices are set to close Dec. 8. If the incumbent for any office (excluding central committees) fails to file by Dec. 8, nominations for that office are extended to Dec. 13.
