San Diego primary election, 2014
|Elections in California|
The June 2014 San Diego primary elections were on June 3, 2014, in San Diego, California. A two-round system was used for the election, starting with a primary in June followed by a November runoff election between the top-two candidates if no candidate received a majority of the votes in the first round.
District 2 appointment
On March 3, 2014, Kevin Faulconer resigned from the City Council to assume the office of Mayor of San Diego, having won the special election to replace Bob Filner. This created a vacancy in District 2. Because the vacancy occurred with less than a year left in Faulconer's term, the vacancy was filled by a City Council appointment per the City Charter. On April 7, 2014, the San Diego City Council voted 5-3 on a second ballot to appoint Ed Harris, head of the city's lifeguard's union, to serve the balance of Faulconer's term. Per the City Charter, Harris was ineligible to run for reelection in 2014.
Special primary election
In the primary election held November 19, 2013, Kevin Faulconer received 43.6 percent of the vote and David Alvarez received 25.6 percent. The two of them advanced to a runoff election on February 11, 2014.
