What is Crossover Voting?
In a Presidential Primary, if you are registered to vote with a political party, you will receive a ballot that contains Presidential candidates for that party only. Voter's who have indicated “No Party Preference/Other/Unknown” on your voter registration are automatically mailed an official ballot before every election in which you are eligible to vote.
Under California Law, qualified political parties may allow registered voters with “No Party Preference” to “crossover” and vote in their parties. Please note that if you choose to request a crossover ballot, it will not change your party preference.
For the March 3, 2020 Presidential Primary Election, the political parties that have allowed “crossover” voting are listed below:
American Independent Party
What to do next:
- If you do not wish to request a “crossover” ballot, no action is required. A “Nonpartisan” ballot will be mailed to you automatically. The nonpartisan ballot will not list party contests such as President of the United States.
- To request a “crossover” ballot, email or call us with your party selection, and include your full name and address. Call toll free at (833)-536-8683, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- To vote for a Presidential candidate of a party not listed for crossover voting, you must first submit a new voter registration application, selecting the party preference of your choice.
