The candidate who receives the most votes by 10PM on Friday, June 28, will join the Top 12 during the Miss California finals. In the event the highest vote receiver is already a finalist due to her preliminary competition scores by the judges, the ACTUAL 12TH RANKING CANDIDATE will become the 12th finalist.
On Wednesday and Thursday night of preliminaries, the top 3 People’s Choice leaders for that day will be called to the front of the stage right after the opening production number. Weekly frontrunners will be showcased on the Miss California Organization’s social media platforms @MissCaOrg.
Miss California 2019’s Scholarship will match the People’s Choice voting at $1 a vote up to 30K.
