Chico, Calif.-- The primary elections are now underway, and across the state, Californians are heading to the polls to take part in the democratic process.

In Chico, poll inspector Paul Gosselin is heading the Chico Masonic Family Center where six precincts of voters will head to today.

He urges people to find the time to get out and just do it, saying it's pretty quick and easy.

You can also turn in your vote via mail if you signed up for a mail-in ballot.

Today in the North State, eyes are on the race for District 1 in congress.

There are four Democrat candidates, two Republican and one Green Party candidate.

Congressman Doug LaMalfa was first elected in 2012 and has had the position ever since.

Audrey Denney is one leading Democrat contender.

She says congress is grid-locked right now, with not enough people willing to cross party lines for the sake of their constituents.

LaMalfa said he's up for the challenge.

The Butte County Registrar of Voters are expecting a low turn out this year for voters.

Let's be sure we head out to the polls today to do our civic duty!

Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.
