From Ballot Access News
On August 30, the Senate Appropriations Committee passed AB 681, after amending it. The bill now requires that independent voters receive two postal notices telling them which parties allow independent voters to vote in their primaries, instead of three notices. Also the bill now says that if an independent voter receives a mail ballot that doesn’t include any particular party’s primary ballot, the voter may return it and request a ballot for any party that allows independents to vote in its presidential primary.
The California deadline for parties to tell the state whether they want to allow independents to vote in their presidential primary has not yet passed. But in 2016, the Democratic, Libertarian, and American Independent Party allowed independents to vote in their presidential primary. The Republican, Green, and Peace & Freedom Parties did not.
