KPBS Voter Hub
We have explainers, an interactive virtual ballot guide, resources on how to vote and where, and of course all the latest news.
KPBS, in collaboration with America Amplified, will utilize generative AI to address some audience and community questions. The GAI tool will assist in drafting responses by gathering verified information from state election offices. Responses will undergo editing, revision and verification by American Amplified and people in the newsroom.

Presidential primary elections are typically held so political parties can elect a presidential candidate to run in the general election. For all other offices, the top two candidates who get the most votes, regardless of what political party they are from, will then run against each other in the fall on Nov. 5.
Same day voter registration is also possible. If you miss the deadline to register to vote you can still vote until election day. You can learn more here.
