California Lawmakers Introduce Bill to Move Up Presidential Primary
Lawmakers are considering a bill to move up California’s presidential primary election date.
Senate Bill 568 seeks to move the presidential primary date from the first Tuesday in June to the third Tuesday in March.
The move is aimed at getting presidential candidates to prioritize issues important to Californians during the primary process.
Senate Bill 568 would also move up primary elections in statewide office and legislative races to help eliminate potential voter confusion from multiple election dates.
