Dickinson is running for re-election in the 2012 election for California State Assembly District 7. He was displaced from his current district by redistricting. He and Jonathan Zachariou (R) advanced past the blanket primary on June 5, 2012, unopposed and will face each other in the general election on November 6, 2012.
He stated that he is running in the 7th district because, "It is not about district lines. I have lived in the same Sacramento neighborhood for over 30 years, and I am honored to have been able to serve my community as a supervisor and now as a member of the State Assembly." The district has a roughly 50% overlap with his current assembly district.
Dickinson defeated Chris Garland, Lauren Hammond, Kevin McCarty and Adam Sartain in the June 8 primary. He then defeated Republican Rick D. Redding and the Peace and Freedom Party's Daniel A. Costa in the November 2 general election.
