In many parts of Los Angeles County, the only contests Tuesday are runoff elections for two seats on the Los Angeles Community College District board. As a result, concerned that a voter turnout of under 10% is likely, the four candidates stress the powerful influence that college trustees have on the district's nine campuses and 105,000 students. None of the four is an incumbent, but Rose Ochi and Althea Baker have enormous financial and staff support from the American Federation of Teachers College Guild local and much of the Democratic Party establishment.

Ventura County supervisorial candidates spent the final weekend of the campaign doing what they've been doing for weeks: knocking on doors, handing out flyers and dialing up voters with pleas for support. The four candidates for two open seats on the Board of Supervisors kept a grueling, grin-and-bear-it schedule that saw them racing back and forth across their districts, trying to contact as many voters as possible.

Of the eight council members up for reelection this year, only Bernardi failed to gain a majority vote in the primary. On Tuesday, his fate will be decided by voters in the 7th Council District, which stretches across the east San Fernando Valley. During the last eight weeks, the two candidates have staged dozens of news conferences to announce endorsements and have sent out numerous flyers attacking each others' flaws and touting their own fortes.

Eight of the nine ballot measures that California voters will decide on June 7 call for decisions on fiscal issues--four relating to taxes and four to borrowing in the form of bonds. Only Proposition 179 asks for a decision on a social issue--whether to increase the punishment for a crime. Three of the tax measures might seem too obscure to be put before the voters--Propositions 176, 177 and 178.

There is no lack of issues in the 1994 campaign for governor, but the differences between two of the leading Democrats--Kathleen Brown and John Garamendi--are mostly of emphasis and style. Tom Hayden has used his candidacy to push for basic reform in campaign finance, to limit the influence of special interests. The sharpest clashes in philosophy are apparent between Republican Gov. Pete Wilson and his conservative GOP challenger, Ron Unz.
