This is not California's "first" "open primary." We had the same kind of primary ballots in 1998 and 2000. It was called a blanket primary. Like our system this year, all candidates for Congress and state partisan office were listed on the same primary ballot, and all voters used that primary ballot.
Also we have used that system for all special congressional and legislative elections ever since 1967.
