There are now over 5.4 million No Party Preference (NPP) voters in California. They represent the fastest growing segment of the electorate and are the second largest voting bloc in California.

In 2016, however, there was widespread confusion over the rules that govern who can and cannot vote in the taxpayer-funded and publicly administered election process. 

This confusion inordinately affects NPP voters who must: (1) know which parties allow them to participate and, (2) actively request a “crossover” ballot to receive a ballot with that party’s presidential candidates.
