I am registered as No Party Preference (NPP), as are 23.6% of California voters. When I opened my "vote by mail" ballot, I was shocked to find no way to vote for president, and no information as to how to vote in the Democratic presidential primary. Democratic candidates were listed for every other office, from Senate to local judges, but nothing for president.
I called my county registrar of voters, who told me I would have to apply by mail for a crossover ballot, on a special form, which she emailed to me. The emailed form was in PDF format, and could be printed, but not copied or put into a file format which could be attached to an email. Also, it was specific for Alameda County, and could not be used generically statewide.
This form has to be in by May 31st. Fortunately, I opened my ballot early enough to take care of it, but many people wait until the last minute. They do have the option of taking the ballot to their local polling place and exchanging it there for a Democrat ballot, but this is not explained in the ballot package. If they mailed in their ballot before election day (June 7th), it's not clear if they have any recourse.
Since NPP voters usually vote for Bernie Sanders, this, in effect, eliminates many of them from voting, and gives Clinton a big advantage. Perfectly legal, but very underhanded.
State Senator Ben Allen, who chairs the State Senate Elections Committee, is doing what he can to let people know. Please spread the word as best you can. And if you are a NPP voter in California, don't send in your ballot without voting for president. Call your county registrar of voters and demand a crossover ballot, or go to the polls and demand one.
Another dirty trick- exit polls have been cancelled for California. https://electionfraud2016.wordpress.com/2016/05/17/big-networks-cancel-exit-polls-in-remaining-primaries/
The exit polls have not matched the official results OUTSIDE the margin of error in many states in the Democratic primary election. It has been a red flag for fraud. WHY are the networks canceling exit polls in the remaining upcoming primaries? Simple. They do not want to provide a means of evidence to document the theft.
Please sign this petition. It asks the Sanders campaign to raise money to fund exit polls in California.
If it weren't for fraud in many states, Bernie would probably have already won the nomination. Let's head it off in California!
