A long line of candidates will be asking for your vote this June, but many of them haven't always made it to the polls themselves in past elections.

KPBS pulled records from the San Diego and Orange County registrars of voters to show when candidates registered to vote, what party (or parties) they registered with and whether they neglected to vote in past elections.

We then reached out to all the candidates to see if they wanted to comment on what we found.

You can see the original records here.

Aired 5/14/18 City Council candidates' voting records.

Aired 5/15/18 County candidates' voting records.

Aired 5/16/18 Congressional candidates' voting records.
