SACRAMENTO - Secretary of State Debra Bowen today announced the certified list of candidates who will appear on the July 23 Special Primary Election ballot for the 52nd Assembly District. The candidates and their official ballot designations are:
The Assembly District 52 special election is being held to fill the vacancy left by Norma Torres, who resigned after being elected to the State Senate.
In a special primary, if one candidate receives a majority of the votes cast (50 percent plus one), no additional election is necessary. If no candidate receives a majority of the votes, a run-off election will be held on September 24, with a ballot featuring the two candidates who received the most votes in the primary, regardless of party preference.
