State legislators

See also: State legislatures with term limits

With the passing on Proposition 28 on June 5, 2012, term limits for California legislators changed. Legislators elected after June 5, 2012, may serve twelve years combined in either chamber. Legislators serving prior to this change still fall under the old rules of three terms (six years) in the California State Assembly and two terms (eight years) in the California State Senate.

County supervisors

Six counties in California limit the terms of county supervisors:

• In Los Angeles, Santa Clara and San Mateo, supervisors are limited to three four-year terms.

• In Orange, San Francisco and San Joaquin, supervisors are limited to two four-year terms.[1]
