Remember: California now has a "Top Two" Primary: Under the new Top Two system, all candidates for Congress, statewide executive offices, and the California Legislature are listed on the same ballot regardless of their party preference. You can vote for any candidate. The two candidates receiving the most votes -- no matter what-- move on to the general election. This means there COULD BE two Democrats, or two Republicans facing off in November instead of the usual one Democrat vs. one Republican (or other party)

◼ Ballotpedia: Voting in California: California uses a blanket primary system, meaning that all candidates compete in the same primary election, regardless of party affiliation. The two who receive the most votes then advance to the general election. This also means the primary is an open primary, meaning that citizens do not need to register for a specific party to vote in the primary.

Note: HRWF does not endorse any particular candidate in a Primary Election. We welcome all Republican candidiates to attend our general meetings and distribute literature.
