For many offices, there are multiple candidates in the race. The two candidates who get the most votes in the primary election appear in the general election in November. This is because of California’s “top two” system. In some cases, the two candidates may be from the same political party. The Voter’s Edge system allows you to sort through this extensive amount of information and create a voting reference list without leaving the database. You can review the candidates’ statements, as well as, a list of top contributors for those candidates who have conducted political fundraising.
