List of special elections to the California State Assembly

Special elections to the California State Assembly are called by the Governor of California when a vacancy arises within the State Assembly. Most special elections are conducted in two rounds. The first is an open primary and the candidate with the most votes must have a majority of the votes plus one to win the seat. If no candidate wins a majority a second round is held with the top candidates for each party.

Recall elections, the process by which voters petition for the removal of an elected official, are also included.

List of special elections

The dates listed only include the open primary round if no second round was held.
