Because City Hall will not be open to provide election night results, a local restaurant will provide the evening results from the county registrar's office.
City Hall, which has traditionally remained open until 11 p.m. on Election Day providing information on local issues and candidates, will close at 5 p.m. this year.
A representative of Villa Nova, an Italian restaurant on Newport Bay, will be at the registrar's office to telephone immediate results, which will then be tabulated on charts inside the dining room, said Jim Dale, owner of the restaurant.
Free hors d'oeuvres and a no-host bar will be available.
The restaurant is at 3131 W. Coast Highway in Newport Beach.
