The 2nd congressional district of California will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 6, 2012.
This is the 2nd 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 Wally Herger (R), who was first elected in 1986. However, due to heavy redistricting, the current incumbent of the district will most likely no longer remain in the district.

Note: Due to California's recently adopted Top Two Candidates Open Primary Act, all candidates compete in one primary. The two who receive the most votes move on to the general election, regardless of any party affiliation.
