Californians go to the polls Tuesday, June 3, 2014, to choose candidates for governor and a handful of other statewide offices, 100 state legislative and 53 congressional seats and scores of local offices.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Find your polling place.)

This is the second time voters will be using the state's "top two" primary voting system for state races - the first time for statewide offices such as governor. Ballots for state and congressional races will include certified candidates from all parties. Voters can choose one candidate in each race, and the top two finishers will advance to the Nov. 4 general election.

For the superintendent of public instruction's race and most city and county government offices, a candidate can win outright at this election if he or she gets more than 50 percent of the votes cast.
