The 2018 California Superintendent of Public Instruction election will be held on November 6, 2018, to elect the Superintendent of Public Instruction of California. Unlike most other elections in California, the Superintendent is not elected under the state's "top-two primary". Instead, the officially nonpartisan position is elected via a nonpartisan primary election, with a runoff only held if no candidate receives a majority of the vote.

Incumbent Superintendent Tom Torlakson is term-limited and cannot seek re-election to a third term.
