| Do I have to pick a political party?
California law permits you to register with one of the seven qualified political parties: American Independent, Democratic, Green, Libertarian, Natural Law, Reform, Republic or as a non-partisan voter (Decline to state). Persons must be registered with one of the qualified political parties to vote for a partisan candidate of that party in Primary elections only.
Exception: Non-partisan voters (i.e. persons not affiliated with any qualified political party) are allowed to vote for any candidate regardless of the candidate's political affiliation if political parties adopt party rules authorizing such voters to do so. General elections allow every voter to vote for any candidate regardless of party affiliation.
| Who has access to my registration information?
Voter registration information is available to persons or groups for election, scholarly, journalistic, political, or governmental purposes as determined by the Secretary of State. All requests to view, purchase, or use voter registration information must be accompanied by a written application.
