Butte County, Calif. -- Californians will head to the polls for the primary election on Tuesday. 

Three candidates will be facing off for the Butte County supervisors seat in the 3rd district.

The candidates running will fill Supervisor Maureen Kirk's seat. Kirk is retiring after 11 years.

District 3 includes Cohasset, Forest Ranch and the eastern half of Chico.

Californians will be heading to the ballots this Tuesday. There are three candidates vying for Butte County supervisor for District 3; Tami Ritter, Norm Rosene and Bob Evans. 

Ritter is a former Chico city councilwoman. Norm Rosene is a Chico dentist. Bob Evans is a former Chico city councilman.

Action News Now asked the three candidates what is their stance on marijuana.

"My stance on cannabis personally doesn't matter because it's really up to the voter and the voters of California have cast their votes, they have said they want just not medicinal, but adult use as well," said Ritter.

"My stance on cannabis is I agree with their current position. Maureen Kirk, the previous supervisor District 3, agreed with that and I hope to maintain the status quo for now," said Rosene.

"I'm in complete agreement with where the current board is today. I don't think we need to be leading the charge on legalizing marijuana," said Evans.

The supervisor race will take the majority vote, which means 50% plus one. If there is not a majority, the two candidates with the most votes will have a runoff election.
