Confusion and misinformation about California’s March 3 primary election abound on social media. Some on Twitter have falsely claimed that millions of voters won’t be able to choose their favorite presidential candidate because they’re registered as No Party Preference. Others have suggested that Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ name was intentionally placed last among presidential candidates on the ballot, fueling mistrust over the election process.

New voter registration figures show the number of Californians identifying as “no party preference” has nearly caught up with registered Republicans. GOP registration as of last month stood at 25.4 percent – just four-tenths of a point higher than “no party preference.”

Former San Luis Obispo County Congressman Kevin McCarthy (R-Bakersfield) is the favorite to become the next Majority Leader of the House of Representatives.

He now has some competition however from Idaho Republican and Tea Party favorite Raul Labrador.

Representative Lois Capps' 24th District congressional seat serves all of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties and had a wide range of challengers on this year's primary ballot with eight different people, including Republicans, Democrats and one Independent.

Capps has held the seat since 1998, taking over for her late husband who held it prior to her.

As of Wednesday morning, Capps took in the highest number of votes on Tuesday with 44.5 percent. Her challenger this November will be Republican Chris Mitchum who garnered 15.6 percent of the vote.
