After LA County's troubles with the ballot on California's Super Tuesday, today's election ballot made it clear that this is not happening again.

"Nonpartisan voters are no longer required to mark an additional bubble to crossover," the NP ballot reads.

On February 5, initial reports said 50,000 votes could have been thrown out due to the confusing crossover bubble, known as the double bubble, nonpartisan voters had to check in order to vote in a certain party's race. In the end, many of those votes were saved.
