The 1936 United States presidential election in California refers to how California participated in the 1936 United States presidential election. California voted for the Democratic incumbent, Franklin Roosevelt, in a landslide over the Republican challenger, Kansas Governor Alfred Landon, carrying every county. As of 2012, this is the last time that a presidential candidate from either political party completely swept all of California's counties in an election. Roosevelt is the last Democrat to carry Orange County in a presidential election, and was the last until John Kerry in 2004 to carry Alpine County. Also, this was the only one of Roosevelt's four presidential campaigns where he carried Riverside County.
