Are you ready to vote? California's primary season shifts into high gear Monday when county registrars start sending mail ballots to voters who want to mark their choices before election day.

The state's June 3 ballot includes contests for governor, secretary of state and other statewide offices, and for all of the state's 53 seats in the House of Representatives all 80 in the state Assembly and 20 of those in the 40-member state Senate.

Along with this, voters will also decide two statewide ballot measures: a proposed bond to fund housing for veterans and a proposed constitutional amendment regarding public records and other governmental matters.
