Registrar of Voters Logo
Voters registered with a political party will receive a ballot with that party’s contest for President.
If you are not registered to vote with one of the six qualified parties in California, you are registered as a “No Party Preference” voter.
“No Party Preference” (NPP) voters will not have the contest for US President on their ballot.
NPP voters who want to vote for President have two options:
The American Independent, Democratic and Libertarian parties allow NPP voters to vote in their primary. The Green, Republican and Peace & Freedom parties require voters to register with their party in order to vote in their primary.
In accordance with State Law, the San Joaquin County Registrar of Voters mailed a postcard to permanent Vote-by-Mail voters who are registered with “No Party Preference”.
The postcard notifies recipients of the NPP status and states the rules for California Presidential Primaries.
If you received a postcard that indicates you are an NPP voter, please consider the following:
