Democrats   Republicans


California has a "Top-Two" primary system:

  • Regular Elections: All candidates, both party members and independents, participate in a non-partisan Primary. The top two vote getters, regardless of party affiliation, advance to the General Election.
  • Special Elections: All candidates, both party members and independents, participate in a non-partisan Special Primary. If one candidate receives a majority (50% + 1) of the primary vote, that candidate is elected. Otherwise, the top two vote getters, regardless of party, advance to the Special General Election.

Candidates run as non-partisan. If a candidate receives the majority of the vote (50% + 1) in the June primary, that candidate is elected. When no candidate receives a majority of the vote in the primary, the top two vote-getters participate in the November runoff election. (Section 4180)

 

Political Parties    Parties appear in parenthesis and italics when a candidate receives the endorsement of a given Party and/or official sources indicate a candidate's association with a particular Party but only where the Party in question does not appear on the actual ballot as such.

Major Parties   Those parties which received electoral votes through winning a plurality of a state's [or the District of Columbia's] popular vote in any presidential election between 1984 and 2016. See Classification of Political parties.
  Democratic (affiliates): 50 incumbents, 150 candidates
  Republican: 12 incumbents, 109 candidates
Major Third Parties   Any Party, other than a Major Party, receiving a minimum of 15/100ths of 1 percent of the nationwide popular vote in any presidential election between 1984 and 2016. See Classification of Political parties.
  Constitution (affiliates): 1 candidate
  Green (affiliates): 2 candidates
  Libertarian: 3 candidates
  Reform (affiliates)
Other Third Parties
  American Independent (affiliate of America's Independent): 1 candidate
  American Solidarity: 1 candidate
  Peace And Freedom: 3 candidates
  Socialist Workers Party: 1 candidate
  The Humane Party
  Unity
Independents
  (blank): 2 incumbents
  No Party Preference: 32 candidates
  Working Class: 1 candidate
Write-in/Scattered/otherwise not readily classifiable
  Write-in: 9 candidates
 
Candidates running under the banner of more than one party are counted towards each party's total. A candidate who has lost a primary or is apparently no longer a candidate is not counted.

Notes

Candidates for office appear on this page in italics where 'The Green Papers' does not yet have independent confirmation from a legal election authority that the person has been officially certified to appear on the ballot.

Primary dates marked "presumably" and polling times marked "reportedly" are based on unofficial or estimated data (especially as regards local variations from a jurisdictionwide statutory and/or regulatory standard) and are, thereby, subject to change.

"FEC" indicates the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Campaign Finance Summary.

When available, we post each candidate's FEC identification number, the date of their most recently filed Report of Receipts and Disbursements, their "Tot" [Total Receipts (contributions received or what came in: FEC Form 3, Line 16, Column B)] and their "Dsb" [Total Disbursements (expenditures or what was spent: FEC Form 3, Line 23, Column B)]. A link is provided to the Federal Election Commission's Summary Report for those who might wish to explore the details.

If a candidate raises or spends $5,000 or less, he or she is not subject to FEC reporting requirements.
