On Tuesday, May 17, 2011, there will be a special primary election held in the 36th Congressional District of California to fill the seat vacated by Representative Jane Harman. The election is being conducted as a Top-Two Primary. If one candidate receives a majority of the votes (50% + 1) in the special primary election, the special general election scheduled for July 12, 2011 will not be held. If no candidate wins a majority, the top two vote-getters (regardless of political party affiliation) will compete in the special general election.
