CALIFORNIA - This election day the runoff for the Assembly District One special election is the only race on the ballot.

Assembly District One stretches from suburban Sacramento to the state's northeastern corner.

Voters in Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra and Siskiyou counties and parts of Butte and Placer counties can vote in the District One election.

Republican Megan Dahle and Democrat Elizabeth Betancourt advanced from the primary election in August.

They are each hoping to succeed Brian Dahle who left his assembly seat after winning a seat in the state Senate last June.

Megan Dahle, wife to Brian Dahle, is a small business owner from Bieber, a small town in Lassen County and has served as president of the Big Valley Joint Unified School Board.

Democrat Elizabeth Betancourt is a Shasta County farmer and water policy specialist.

The district's registered voters are 40% Republican and 28% Democrat.
