Under this system, all voters – whether they're registered in a political party or not – will see every candidate from every party on their ballots.  For example, 24 different people are running for California's U-S Senate seat.  Voters can pick any one of those candidates – and the top two finishers in each race advance to the November election. Trudy Schafer with the League of Women Voters of California says their members have been busy this year trying to educate voters.
