Just 31 at the time of his election to the District 28 seat in 2014, Evan Low was the youngest Asian-American ever elected to the California State Assembly. Since then, he’s been an active leader, helping to launch the California Legislative Technology & Innovation Caucus in 2015 and winning Legislator of the Year from a number of technology groups.

In November 2022, after redistricting, Low won reelection in District 26. He began his fifth term in December 2022.


Prior to his election to the assembly, Low achieved a number of other milestones. This included getting elected to the Campbell City Council at 23 and becoming the first Asian-American elected to the group. In 2010, Low became the youngest openly gay mayor in the United States. He also has a bachelor’s degree from San Jose State University and is a graduate of a three-week program at Harvard University for state and local leaders.

Select Legislation

AB 2943, Unlawful business practices: sexual orientation change efforts: Low has authored a number of laws that support and protect the rights of LGBT individuals. One bill he introduced that failed to become law, however, was AB 2943 which would have banned paid conversion therapy in California. Low shelved his 2018 bill, the Los Angeles Times noted, after complaints from religious groups.

AB 1751, Controlled substances: CURES database: A common complaint by U.S. lawmakers during the opioid crisis in recent years has been the difficulty to share data between different groups and jurisdictions. Low authored this 2018 bill, which sought to “empower the Controlled Substances Utilization Review and Evaluation System—referred to as CURES—to share data across state lines for purpose of protecting patients.”

AB 1968, Mental health: firearms: This restricts gun access for people with more than two involuntary psychiatric holds, aka 5150, in one year. Low’s bill passed despite concerns from the American Civil Liberties Union that it stigmatized mental illness, according to the Sacramento Bee.
