BACKGROUND:

BACKGROUND On June 8, 2010, California voters approved Proposition 14, which created the Top Two Candidates Open Primary Act. Allows all voters to choose any candidate regardless of the candidate’s or voter’s political party preference. (except for President and Central Committees) If no one receives a 50% + 1 of votes, then this act ensures that the two candidates who receives the most votes, regardless of party preference, will move on to the November General Election.
