Moorpark Voters Head to the Polls Tomorrow

The two candidates with the most votes on Tuesday, regardless of political party, will move on to the general election on November 6.

Starting at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Moorpark voters can start casting their votes in local, state and national races. There are also two state propositions that need to be voted on.

Registered voters will get the opportunity to select a presidential candidate, a U.S. Senate candidate and also approve two state ballot measures.

Proposition 28 reduces the total amount of time a person can serve in the state legislature from 14 to 12 years.

Proposition 29 adds a $1 tax on cigarettes to fund cancer research. 

In Moorpark, voters will get the chance to select a representative for the newly-formed 26th Congressional district.

The six candidates are Ventura County Supervisor Linda Parks, running independently; Sen. Tony Strickland, the race's only Republican and Democrats Assemblywoman Julia Brownley, real estate agent Albert Maxwell Goldberg, Oxnard Harbor Commissioner Jess Herrera and businessman David Cruz Thayne.

For the 27th Senatorial district, State Senator Fran Paveley is seeking a second term, against Republican Todd Zink.

For the new 44th district, Assemblymember Jeff Gorell will face two challengers in the state assembly race. Democrats Eileen MacEnery and Thomas Mullens are going up against Gorell.

For the first time, Californians will choose candidates from a single primary ballot rather than selecting nominees for each party. The two candidates with the most votes tomorrow will move on to the general election on November 6.

There are 10 polling places in Moorpark that will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday. To find your polling place, click here.
