Be sure you are registered with the party of your choice. If you are currently Unaffiliated, you may declare your party at the polls on June 5. If you mistakenly registered as an Independent, you cannot vote in the primary since only Republicans and Democrats hold a primary election. The deadline for changing Party Affiliation for the June primary is April 11. Political Party Declaration forms are available at and must be received at your county clerk's office by April 11.

The deadline to register for the June primary is May 15; your voter registration form must be postmarked by that date. Applications for Vote-by-Mail ballots can be downloaded and must be received by your county clerk at least seven days before the election, May 29. All forms are available at, where you will be directed to your county clerk.

Please attend or watch the forum and VOTE.
