United States Senate election in California, 2016

United States Senate election in California, 2016

November 8, 2016

Incumbent U.S. Senator

Barbara Boxer

The 2016 United States Senate election in California will take place on November 8, 2016, to elect a member of the United States Senate to represent the State of California, concurrently with the 2016 U.S. presidential election, as well as other elections to the United States Senate in other states and elections to the United States House of Representatives and various state and local elections.

Under California's nonpartisan blanket primary law, all candidates appear on the same ballot, regardless of party. In the primary, which will be held on June 7, 2016, voters may vote for any candidate, regardless of their party affiliation. The top two finishers — regardless of party — advance to the general election in November, even if a candidate manages to receive a majority of the votes cast in the primary election. Washington is the only other state with this system, a so-called "top two primary" (Louisiana has a similar "jungle primary").

Incumbent Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer has not yet announced whether she will run for re-election to a fifth term in office.[1]


Boxer was re-elected with 52.1% of the vote in 2010. Her low fundraising and cash-on-hand numbers have led to speculation that she will choose to retire.[1][2]
