California held its primary elections on Tuesday, March 3, 2020, which is also known as Super Tuesday (and is not to be confused with Taco Tuesday, which is considerably tastier and also inherently Californian). These included state primaries and the Presidential primaries for the Democratic and Republican nominations. On November 3, 2020, the state will hold its general election, including the federal Presidential election.
With Bernie Sanders winning CA easily, you can still get on action on presidential election odds, which will be up until the November general.

Trump was soundly beaten in California during the 2016 Presidential election, as expected. Hillary Clinton took 61.73% of the vote compared to Trump’s 31.62%, winning by more than 4 million votes in total.
This has led to calls from the left to abolish the electoral college, while it has led to calls from the right to keep the electoral college intact so a single state or city center can’t swing an entire federal election. The California 2016 general election will be cited in election reform debates for years to come.
There were some obvious favorites on the Democratic side of the playing field in California, and the Democratic primary odds showed that on the betting boards. Sanders won easily, and he was far out in front on the odds boards (via Bovada).
President Donald Trump was the favorite to win the GOP Primary in California, and he did exactly that, earning 91.9% of the vote.
While Trump doesn’t expect to boost his Republican election odds and swing California red (the state has voted blue in every general election since 1992), his campaigning there could have party-boosting downstream effects in the US House and Senate, as well as various state races.
Polling locations vary, but most CA residents will find that the polls are easily accessible and accommodating both before and during election day. California does not require voter identification in order to vote (a very controversial issue).
