The 2018 California gubernatorial election will be held on November 6, 2018, to elect the next Governor of California. The race is between Gavin Newsom and John H. Cox. The winner will assume office on January 7, 2019.

Incumbent Democratic Governor Jerry Brown was ineligible to run for reelection for a third consecutive (or fifth non-consecutive) term due to term limits from the Constitution of California.

Candidates[edit]

A primary election was held on June 5, 2018. Under California's nonpartisan blanket primary law, all candidates appeared on the same ballot, regardless of party. Voters may vote for any candidate, regardless of their party affiliation. The top two finishers – regardless of party – advance to the general election in November, regardless of whether a candidate manages to receive a majority of the votes cast in the primary election.
