Assemblyman Gorell Intros New Bill To Fix 2010 Election Law Mistake

Jeff GorellState Assemblyman Jeff Gorell (R-Camarillo) has introduced legislation to correct a problem with the way primary election write-in candidates qualify for general elections in California.

Under the current “Top Two” election system, anyone could qualify for the second spot in a general election, even by simply voting for themselves in the primary. The new bill would require a primary candidate to achieve a minimum 1% vote to earn a spot on the general election ballot.

“The 1% minimum established a degree of legitimacy for write-in votes,” said Gorell. “It makes sense that we would want to continue that requirement under the new system of state elections.”

The proposed change would fix an unintended flaw in Proposition 14, passed by California voters in 2010, that allows the two candidates who receive the most votes in a primary to face each other in the general election, regardless of party affiliation. The language necessary to maintain a 1% threshold for write-in votes was inadvertently left out of Prop 14. AB 141 would correct that oversight by reestablishing the 1% requirement.
