The appointment of Assembly Member David Chiu to be city attorney will soon leave open his seat representing San Francisco’s eastside and trigger a race that may quickly get crowded.
Chiu tentatively plans to vacate his seat Oct. 31, but he hasn’t submitted his official resignation to the Assembly yet. Once he does, Governor Gavin Newsom must call for a special election within 14 days. It can either be held between 126 and 140 days after that, or within 200 days to consolidate it with another election. San Francisco voters will be at the ballot again in June 2022.
