Excerpt from Primary Election Law for the City and County of San Francisco and the County of Los Angeles: Enacted by the Legislature of 1895
If such political party is one which by reason of its previous vote is entitled to hold a convention defined by sections eleven hundred and eighty-six and eleven hundred and eighty-seven of the Political Code, such petition must be authenticated by the signature of the Chairman and Secretary of its State Com mittee, selected at its last State convention of such party, veri fied by the oath of such signers that the facts therein stated are true, and that the said signers are the Chairman and Score tary of said committee. No political party or organization can use the name of another political party or organization, or any name or designation so similar to another party name that it may deceive voters.
Sec. 3. Any political party or political organization which, at the last election preceding the filing of such application, shall not have polled at least three per cent of the entire vote cast in the political division for which nominations are sought to be made, may file with the Election Commissioners of the county, or city and county, in which such general primary elec tion is to be held, a petition, signed by at least three per cent of the voters of the political division for which nominations are sought to be made, which need not all be on one paper; which petition shall set out all the facts required to be set forth in the application in this Act provided for; and such petition must be verified in the same manner as required for a certificate of nomination mentioned in section eleven hundred and eighty eight of the Political Code. Upon the filing of such petition, the Election Commissioners of the county, or city and county, in which said primary election is to be held, shall order its Clerk to issue to said political organization a certificate similar to that in this Act provided to be issued to existing political parties, which certificate shall entitle the petitioners to partici pate in the said general primary election, and shall entitle them to all privileges and rights secured and granted to other polit ical parties heretofore existing, both at said primary election and at the ensuing general election; that is to say, having complied with all the requirements in this Act provided, the petitioners shall be recognized as a political party or organiza tion. Such certificate shall be issued to all parties petitioning, stating the name of the party, the date of the primary, the ter ritory over which it will extend, and be signed by the Clerk of such Board.
