State releases June 3 certified candidate list

California Secretary of State Debra Bowen today released the certified list of more than 450 candidates who will appear on the June 3 primary election ballot including Congressional, state Senate and Assembly seats up for election.

Each of California’s 53 Congressional seats and 80 State Assembly seats is up for grabs, as are the 20 State Senate seats in odd-numbered districts.

The top vote-getter from each party’s primary will advance to the November 4 general election.

The official certified list of candidates, with ballot designations and contact information for each candidate, is available at http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/elections_cand.htm.

According to the state, in the June primary, decline-to-state voters may request an American Independent, Democratic or Republican ballot. Decline-to-state voters who do not request a specific ballot will be given a nonpartisan ballot containing only the two ballot measures, Propositions 98 and 99, and any nonpartisan local races.

The last day to register to vote in the June 3 election is May 19. The last day to request a vote-by-mail ballot is May 27.

    Could you please clarify something for me? In the February primary, Decline To State voters were not allowed to vote in the Republican primary. Is the process different for this June primary? Thanks.

    FROM LISA V. Yes, Patty, it will be different in June. The California GOP only bans non-Republican voters from its presidential primarh. At this time, it welcomes everyone into the primaries for Congressional, state and other partisan seats.

    I think California Secretary of State Debra Bowen has had her picture in Lisa V’s blog more than just about anyone else. Especially for a state wide leader?

    What is the connection Lisa? Is she a good source?
