Voters Should Check Party Affiliation Ahead Of January Registration Deadline

Shasta County voters registered with no party preference should be getting letters from the Elections Department concerning their ability to participate in the March Presidential Primary. No party preference registrants may cast nomination votes for the Democratic, Libertarian or American Independent Party but the Republican, Green, and Peace and Freedom Parties do not allow primary voters who are not registered members of their parties. Those who wish to complete a cross-over ballot application or to re-register are asked to do so by January 11th.
