The 16th congressional district of California will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 6, 2012.
This is the 16th congressional district prior to the 2010 redistricting.

Candidates wishing to run must file by the signature filing deadline of March 9, 2012. The primary election will be held on June 5, 2012.

Heading into the election the incumbent is Zoe Lofgren (D), who was first elected in 1994. However, due to heavy redistricting, the current incumbent of the district will most likely no longer remain in the district.
