The special election for the remaining months left in the term vacated by Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Tulare, will be held June 7, according to an announcement Friday from the office of Gov. Gavin Newsom.

Congressional District 22, as well as state Assembly districts 11 and 80, will see special elections that coincide with the statewide primary on June 7.

Those special elections will need their own primary election on April 5, the announcement said. The top two vote-getters from the primary would face off in June unless one gets more than 50% of the vote.

A Tulare Republican, Nunes submitted his resignation at the end of last year. He made that announcement the same day he was named the chief executive officer of the Trump Media & Technology Group.

Register to vote

The election in Fresno County will be much like it has in recent years, with registered voters getting ballots by mail, which can be returned by mail, at a voting center, or in a ballot box.

Residents can register online up to 15 days before the election or in person up to Election Day.
