Elections for the office of California State Assembly will take place in 2014. A primary election took place June 3, 2014. The general election will take place on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was March 7, 2014. Incumbent Freddie Rodriguez (D) and Dorothy F. Pineda (R) were unopposed in the blanket primary. Rodriguez will face Pineda in the general election.
Rodriguez won election in a special election for California State Assembly District 52. The seat was vacant following Norma Torres's (D) election to the California State Senate on May 14, 2013. He faced eight others in a blanket primary, which took place on July 23. As no candidate received more than fifty percent of the votes the top two vote-getters - Freddie Rodriguez (D) and Paul Leon (I) - met in a runoff election on September 24, which Rodriguez won by a margin of 7,054 to 6,689 votes.

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
