When registering to vote, you may affiliate with any qualified political party, you may affiliate with a political party that has not qualified in California, or you may select "No Party Preference". If you register without indicating your political party affiliation, you will be considered a "No Party Preference" voter.
In California, the qualified political parties are:
• American Independent
• Peace & Freedom
• Americans Elect
For information on each qualified political party, visit the Secretary of State’s website at http://www.sos.ca.gov.
If you wish to change your current political party affiliation, you must re-register at least 15 days prior to an election. In the Primary (except for President of the United States) and General elections, voters may vote for any candidate regardless of political party affiliation. See Registering to Vote for more information on how to obtain a new registration form.
