Do I have to join a Political Party?

On the voter registration form, you will be asked if you want to choose a political party. You may choose one of the qualified parties listed, or you may select "Decline to State", which means you do not wish to be affiliated with any political party.  If you leave this question blank, you will be assigned to “Decline to State."

Here is a link to the official list of political parties in California from the California Secretary of State website.
