California holds its primary election June 7, 2022, and as voting season again approaches, it can be overwhelming to figure out the who, what, where, when, and how to vote. 

Registered voters in California have began receiving mail-in ballots for the June 7th primary elections.  This includes local races and the awaited governors race, the county’s voter registrar announced. Mail-in ballots have begun arriving in mailboxes for the California primary elections June 7. Some counties will have In-person early voting sites scheduled to open May 9 through June 6, and all counties will be opening vote-by-mail drop-off locations. Over half of California counties will be offering in-person voting for 10 days before Election Day on May 28th.

The 2022 primary in June is less than a month away, with a handful of statewide and congressional races on the line across California, plus local races in your district. With so many of those races on which voters will have a say, the June 7 Election Day is going to be pivotal. This year is the third time in four years that Californians will be voting on a governor. 

This year’s candidates are looking to replace its current corporate-funded governor. The top runners are:

Reinette Senum – two-time Mayor of Nevada county and a champion for resetting California as the golden started for food supply, healthy families and liberty.

Brian Dahle – also from northern California, a Republican candidate who has spent ten years in the State legislature.

Jenny Rae Le Roux – an entrepreneur from Redding California who got involved into politics last year during the recall. She finished 29th.

The common motivation being mentioned by candidates running this year is their dissatisfaction of how California was governed the last two years. It is a growing sentiment amongst its residents and is being represented by the candidates running. 
Polls for in-person voting open as early as May 28 in selected counties. Mail-in ballots can be brought into the polls for in-person voting. For those who prefer to vote at the polls and received a mail-in ballot are instructed to bring the ballot with them to the polls.  Voting locations will offer voter registration, replacement ballots, accessible voting machines, and language assistance. All votes, whether mail-in or in-person must be received by 8p.m. on June 7, 2022.
