Top Two Candidates Open Primary Act

The Top Two Candidates Open Primary Act, which took effect January 1, 2011, created “voter-nominated” offices. The Top Two Candidates Open Primary Act does not apply to candidates running for U.S. President, county central committees, or local offices.

Most of the offices that were previously known as “partisan” are now known as “voter-nominated” offices. Voter-nominated offices are state constitutional offices, state legislative offices, and U.S. congressional offices. The only “partisan offices” now are the offices of U.S. President and county central committee.

The February 25 deadline to request a vote by mail ballot has passed. If you need voting assistance, please visit a Vote Center.


California will hold the Presidential Primary Election on March 3 2020. Presidential Primaries are unique because political parties can let No Party Preference voters “crossover” into their party and vote for one of their presidential candidates.
