Coastal O.C. Votes Today in State Race

April 11, 2006|From a Times Staff Writer

Voters in coastal Orange County vote today to fill a vacant state Senate seat.

Voters will choose among Republicans Tom Harman, an assemblyman from Huntington Beach, and Diane Harkey, a Dana Point councilwoman; and Democrat Larry Caballero, a teacher from La Palma.

If no candidate wins a majority, the top Republican vote-getter will face a runoff with Caballero on June 6. The winner will replace former Sen. John Campbell (R-Irvine), who was elected in December to Congress.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Voters will use paper ballots instead of the county's electronic voting system because mandated equipment couldn't be installed in time for the election.

The 35th Senate District runs from Seal Beach and Cypress south to Dana Point and includes Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley, Newport Beach and Irvine.
