<blockquote>"Because state senatorial districts hold staggered elections, redistricting allows some Californians to cast two votes for a state senator within a four-year election cycle: once in their old senatorial district, and once again, just two years later, in their new senatorial district. Meanwhile others do not vote for a state senator at any point within the same four-year timeframe. Redistricting therefore creates the exact harm it intends to prevent: in service of the ideal of “one person, one vote,” California gives some voters two votes and others no vote at all. During the current cycle, an estimated 3.97 million Californians will be temporarily disenfranchised on account of redistricting; another 3.9 million will be double-enfranchised."<ref>[http://www.yalelawjournal.org/images/pdfs/1086.pdf ''Yale Law Journal,'' "One Person, No Vote: Staggered Elections, Redistricting, and Disenfranchisement"]</ref></blockquote>

Heading into the November 6 election, the Democratic Party holds the majority in the California State Senate:

Democrats seek supermajority

The 27th Senate District is expected to be a battleground in determining whether Democrats reach the coveted 2/3 majority. Fran Pavley (D) is expected to face Tony Strickland (R). Both senators are far from the political center. The new district, is considered to be somewhat even in political makeup.[1]

Qualifications

A candidate shall:

A. Be at least 30 years of age, a U.S. citizen for nine years, and a resident of California when elected. U.S. Const. Art. I, §3
B. Have a valid voter registration affidavit on file in the county of residence at the time nomination papers are obtained. §201
C. Satisfy the following registration requirements:
1. Be registered with the political party whose nomination he or she is seeking for not less than three months immediately prior to the time the declaration of candidacy is presented to the county elections official or, if eligible to register for less than three months, for as long as he or she has been eligible to register to vote in California. §8001(a)(1)
2. Not have been registered as affiliated with any other qualified political party within twelve months immediately prior to the filing of the declaration of candidacy. §8001(a)(2)[4]

Impact of redistricting

See also: Redistricting in California

Redistricting in California in 2011 was undertaken by the California Citizens Redistricting Commission for the first time. California voters took the redistricting powers away from legislators through the ballot process in 2008 and 2010.

California state senators represent roughly 1 million citizens while assembly members have about 500,000 constituents.[5] Those are the most citizens per legislator in the country.

Double representation

There is the possibility that some voters will be re-located either from an odd district to an even district, or vice versa. But even more specifically, there is the possibility that a senator elected in 2010 could run in 2012 in an even-numbered district. Should that happen, then the odd-district will be represented by a "custodian" -- selected by the Rules Committee.

Meanwhile, if a senator in an odd-district (elected in 2008) is moved into an even-district, then the voters of that district will have two senators -- the new senator, and the old one elected in 2010. For example:

  • If Alex Padilla of District 20 is moved into the 21st District, then he will continue to serve until 2014 as he was elected to a 4-year term. Voters of the new 21st District will still elect a new senator in the fall of 2012. Voters of the new District 20 will be served by the "custodian" -- likely to be a neighboring senator.[6]
"Because state senatorial districts hold staggered elections, redistricting allows some Californians to cast two votes for a state senator within a four-year election cycle: once in their old senatorial district, and once again, just two years later, in their new senatorial district. Meanwhile others do not vote for a state senator at any point within the same four-year timeframe. Redistricting therefore creates the exact harm it intends to prevent: in service of the ideal of “one person, one vote,” California gives some voters two votes and others no vote at all. During the current cycle, an estimated 3.97 million Californians will be temporarily disenfranchised on account of redistricting; another 3.9 million will be double-enfranchised."[7]

Term limits

Joe Simitian has represented District 11 in the California State Senate since 2004. He will be ineligible to run for reelection in 2012.
See also State legislatures with term limits and Impact of term limits on state senate elections in 2012

The California State Senate has been a term-limited state senate since California voters approved Proposition 140 in 1990. Under the terms of Proposition 140, California's senators can serve no more than two 4-year terms in the state senate. This is a lifetime limit, as is the case in five other states with state senatorial term limits.

There are 40 California State Senators. In 2012, 7 who are current members, 17.5% of the total senate seats, will be ineligible to run for the senate again in November. Of them, 4 are Democratic and 3 are Republican.

In addition to the 7 state senators who are leaving office because of California's term limits, 21 state representatives are also termed-out.

The state senators who are term-limited in 2012 are:


Democrats (4):

Republicans (3):
