The California Federation of Republican Women is uniquely situated in the land of golden opportunity. California is a glorious visual celebration. Located on the Pacific coast of the United States, California enjoys the gamut of scenery, topography, shoreline and desert. Its sunshiny climate and exotic locales lured movie makers early on to California's shores and thus Hollywood became the basis for social mores and tastes shaped around the world.
CFRW is uniquely situated in the forefront of California politics and its organizational structure and its membership is as diverse as the population and scenery of the golden state. California State Government is divided into three branches:
Voters choose a political party at the time they register to vote. One of the choices is "decline to state" and that voter is "unaffiliated" with any political party. Our state holds two major elections a primary and a general. During a primary election the political parties choose the candidates they will run in the November general election. California now holds a modified open primary. In the old "closed" primary system only voters registered in a political party could vote that party's primary ballot. Unaffiliated ("Decline to state") voters voted only on whatever measures and non-partisan candidates were on the ballot.
