Voter Bill of Rights, voting, elections, california, rights, league of women voters

The June 7, 2016 Presidential Primary Election is just days away and California Secretary of State Alex Padilla and LWVC President Helen Hutchison are urging voters to know their rights. The California Voter Bill of Rights can be found in the Voter Information Guide sent to every voting household.  It is also available online in 10 different languages: http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/voter-bill-rights/

Announcement

Each political party has the option of allowing people who register to vote without stating a political party preference ("no party preference" voters, formerly "decline-to-state" voters) to vote in their presidential primary election. 

Are you a “no party preference” voter?

If you checked “I do not want to disclose a political party preference” on the voter registration form, you will not get a ballot containing the names of candidates running for president. Your ballot will contain all other races and ballot measures.
