  • Proposition 62 was a California ballot proposition on the November 2, 2004 ballot. It failed to pass with 5,119,155 votes in favor and 5,968,770 against. Officially known as the Voter Choice Open Primary Act, the proposition was an initiative constitutional amendment and statute that provided for a modified blanket primary election system like that used in the state of Louisiana. Under the provisions of the proposition, instead of traditional partisan primary elections for statewide offices, all candidates for election would appear on the primary election ballot, and all voters could vote for any candidate regardless of the party affiliation of the voter or candidates. The two candidates with the most votes would later appear on the general election ballot. Prop 62 would have affected elections to all statewide elected officers, for the California State Legislature, and for federal congressional elections
