We're following one election today.
California State Assembly District 18
Special All Party Primary
There are 80 seats in the California State Assembly. It is currently comprised of 59 Democrats, 19 Republicans and 1 independent. The next regularly scheduled elections are in 2022.
District 18 is in the Oakland area, entirely within Alameda County. The vacancy was created in April when Democrat Rob Bonta resigned after being confirmed as California Attorney General.
There are eight candidates on the ballot. The six Democrats include Mia Bonta, wife of the former incumbent. The only Republican on the ballot, Stephen Slauson, was the GOP nominee in both 2018 and 2020. There is also an independent. A ninth person, Democrat Nelsy Batista, is a certified write-in candidate.
This is a very Democratic area; Rob Bonta received over 85% of the vote in each of the last several elections.
If no candidate gets a majority of the vote, a top two special general election will be held on August 31. Polls close at 11:00 PM Eastern Time.
