Secretary of State Bowen Announces
Certified List of 26th Senate District Candidates

SACRAMENTO - Secretary of State Debra Bowen today announced the certified list of candidates who will appear on the September 17 Special Primary Election ballot for the 26th Senate District. The candidates and their official ballot designations are:

  • Mervin Evans (Party Preference: Democratic) – Author/Management Consultant
  • Holly J. Mitchell (Party Preference: Democratic) – Assemblymember

The Senate District 26 special election is being held to fill the vacancy left by Curren Price, Jr., who resigned after being elected to the Los Angeles City Council.

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 runoff election will be held on November 19 with a ballot featuring the two candidates who received the most votes in the primary, regardless of party preference.
