What you need to know about the California primary

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Voters planning on heading to the polls in June for the California primary will want to double check their registration.

Voter registration could affect which candidates voters will be able to support in June.

On Friday, Donald Trump launched a statewide phone call effort to urge voters to register Republican.

Nearly one-third of San Diego County voters are registered non-partisan or no-party preference, but the Registrar of Voters is encouraging voters to make sure they know their registration before showing up to cast their vote.

The deadline to register or re-register to be able to vote in the state June 7th primary is May 23rd.

Those who are registered as non-partisan or no-party preference will be allowed to crossover and vote for candidates in the American Independent party, Democratic or Libertarian party.

Parties that do not allow a crossover vote, meaning voters will have to be registered with a specific party to vote for their preferred candidate include the: Green, Peace and Freedom party and the Republican party.

Also, voters can select a non-partisan ballot with no presidential candidate and still vote for state and local races, including referendums.

There are 1.5 million registered voters in San Diego County, and 60-percent are mail-in ballots which will be sent out on May 9th.

Voters who receive a party ballot they wish to change can call the Registrar of Voters and request a new one.

The deadline to register to vote is May 23rd and voters can complete their registration and/or re-register online.
