In 2017, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill — the prime Time Primary Act — moving the California’s primary from the traditional June slot up to the earliest date permissible.
California is slated to vote in the presidential primary election on March 3, 2020, the first day allowed for a state that’s not in the traditional early state lineup. And because of California’s early-voting system, voters will get primary ballots starting 30 days before the primary, which coincides with the Iowa caucuses.
