Today marks the final day to register to vote in California’s June 7 primary, but some Sanders supporters wants to change that.
Bay Area lawyer William Shipnel has filed a federal lawsuit to extend the voter registration deadline for Californians. He argues there's widespread confusion about the state’s Presidential Primary rules - specifically for independent voters who've declared No Party Preference.
They need to request a partisan ballot if they want to vote for president since their default ballot is non-partisan. KPCC political reporter Mary Plummer walks us through the latest with that lawsuit, LA County’s 2 supervisor seat races and more.
We’ll also get a reset on the week ahead in the presidential campaigns as all eyes turn to California.
