Help us Save California from the Corrupt Louisiana Elections Scheme

This November, Californians will have to choose whether or not to adopt Louisiana Style elections for California. The proponents of this scheme are calling it the latest "Open Primary".

The fact is, if this passes, we won't have primary elections anymore. Our election system will be modeled after the Louisiana style run off system that allowed dangerous fringe candidates like David Duke to be on the 1991 Louisiana ballot for Governor. Third parties will never see the light of a general election under this new system. Republicans and Democrats will be fighting themselves and corruption will overtake our great state.

Californians for Election Accountability is a broad–based grassroots coalition dedicated to stopping the attack on our election system and 100 years of California history. Our supporters hail from every major and minor political party and various political organizations all over the state. Everyone believes in something and everyone has something to loose if this passes.

Here’s what Prop. 62 will do in California:

  • DENY ballot access to hundreds of qualified candidates.  If this measure had been in effect for the 2000, 2002 and 2004 elections, 300 Assembly candidates and 50 Senate candidates would have been denied an appearance on the November ballots.
  • LIMIT CHOICE. This measure forces voters to choose  between only 2 candidates  and in numerous districts those candidates will be from the same Party.
  • INVITE FRAUD. The experience in Louisiana is clear. Their run-off primary system has increased fraud and election abuse.
  • ALLOW RADICALS to manipulate the system. The David Duke example is only the most infamous of many from the State of Louisiana.
  • DEPRESS TURNOUT. Voter turnout in Louisiana is the worst in the nation. In the last General Election in Louisiana, only 33% of registered voters bothered to participate.
