With one month to go before California's March primary, FM89's Kathleen Schock discussed the Fresno mayoral race with GV Wire News Director Bill McEwen, West Hills College Political Science Professor Nick Gera, and Fresno Bee columnist Marek Warszawski.

California has moved its primary election earlier in the year. Instead of June, voters will now cast their ballots in March. For Fresno and Mariposa Counties, there are other changes intended to update voting technology and increase voter turnout. Fresno and Mariposa have adopted the new Voter's Choice Act Model, which means voting centers have replaced polling places, and every voter is mailed a ballot. Madera County adopted the model in 2018.
