The special election was held to fill the District 1 seat on the county Board of Supervisors, vacated when Mark Church was elected chief elections officer, assessor and recorder. District 1 is in the area of San Mateo, Hillsborough, Burlingame, Millbrae, San Bruno and South San Francisco, but candidates for the Board of Supervisors run county-wide.
