2020 United States presidential election in California

← 2016 November 3, 2020 2024 →

The 2020 United States presidential election in California is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, as part of the 2020 United States elections in which all 50 states plus the District of Columbia will participate.[1] California voters will choose electors to represent them in the Electoral College via a popular vote. The state of California has 55 electoral votes in the Electoral College.[2]

As of May 2019, Donald Trump and Bill Weld are the declared Republican candidates. Kamala Harris, the state's junior U.S. Senator, and Eric Swalwell, a current congressman from the state, are among the Democratic candidates declared. Other prominent state figures, including former Governor Jerry Brown, current Governor Gavin Newsom, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and billionaire Tom Steyer have declined to run.[3][4][5][6]

In a departure from previous election cycles, California will hold its primaries on Super Tuesday, March 3, 2020.[7]
