Three California Libertarians Will Appear on November 2020 Ballot for Legislature

Ballot Access News

On February 21, the California Secretary of State posted the list of declared write-in candidates for the March 2020 primary. Under California’s top-two system for congress and partisan state office, if only two candidates are running, obviously both of them will appear on the November ballot.
There are three legislative races with only two candidates running for a legislative seat, although there are no such races for U.S. House. In the State Senate district 9 race, one Democrat is on the March primary ballot and one Libertarian, Jamie Dluzak, filed for write-in status.
In the Assembly district 7 race, one Democrat is on the primary ballot and one Libertarian, James O. Just, filed for write-in status.
In the Assembly district 17 race, one Democrat is on the primary ballot and one Libertarian, Starchild, filed for write-in status.
There are other races in which only a Democrat is on the March ballot and a minor party member filed for write-in status, but in all those districts, a Republican also filed for write-in status. Generally when that happens, the major party member who filed for write-in status gets more write-ins than the minor party member.
