The special election for the 25th Congressional District seat will take place March 3, and if no candidate wins the majority, then a runoff will be held on May 12, the governor’s office said.

March 3 is also the scheduled date for California’s 2020 presidential primary, as well as the primary for November’s House elections.


That means that residents of the 25th Congressional District will be able to vote twice for a candidate, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Assemblywoman Christy Smith of Santa Clarita and “The Young Turks” host Cenk Uygur are two of the notable Democrats running for the seat.
