Sacramento, CA – California Secretary of State Shirley N. Weber, Ph.D. responded today to a letter authored by California Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis regarding the removal of former President Donald Trump from California's 2024 presidential primary ballot.

In her letter, Weber reinforced that, because this is an issue of particular concern to the public, she is obligated to address it within legal parameters and in the best interests of all California voters.

“It is incumbent upon my office to ensure that any action undertaken regarding any candidate’s inclusion or omission from our ballots be grounded firmly in the laws and processes in place in California and our Constitution.”
