    Just got a notice in the mail that I HAVE to fill out in order to vote for POTUS. But...it only lists 3 choices: American Independent, Democratic, Libertarian. Thats it.
    What some of it says:

    To vote in the Presidential Primary for the Green, Peace and Freedom, or Republican Party, you must re-register to vote with one of those parties.

    I heard somewhere that California was not even going to put Trump as a choice on the ballot. WTF? Since when are our votes not allowed for any certain party??? Is this legal?

    I believe these are closed primaries where each party controls the process. In the General there can be no restrictions like these under the Federal Election Commission rules and federal law..

    CA made it a law that you have to release your tax returns to be on their presidential ballot.

    Sorry about your luck.

    It's not a big deal. Those letters weren't sent to everybody. They were only sent to people whose voting record indicates they voted for Trump. The preferred voters just keep doing what they have been doing.

    That would be considered "election interference." California's fixing to get dick-slapped.

    Looks like all those Judges Trump appointed is finally starting pay off, and will for decades.
