Map of the 76th Assembly District, the only "open" Assembly seat in San Diego County, 2018

California's 76th State Assembly District is made up of Oceanside, Encinitas, Carlsbad, Vista and Camp Pendleton.

While voter registration has historically been predominantly Republican, latest figures show Democrats now have an advantage. There are 83,808 Democrats compared to 81,804 Republicans. There are also 74,658 voters who decline to state a party affiliation.

Republican Assemblyman Rocky Chávez has held the 76th since redistricting in 2012. This year he decided to run for Congress but lost, leaving the assembly seat up for grabs.
