In a low-key election, typical campaign strategy is to identify the voters most likely to support your candidate and quietly but repeatedly urge them to the polls. That's what's happening now in the campaign to replace former Anaheim state Sen. John Seymour. Except for a few lawn signs, the race is almost invisible. But like miners digging for votes, the candidates are sending letters and making phone calls to the relative handful of voters most sympathetic to their issues.

With so few voters expected to cast ballots in Tuesday's special 35th Senate District election, political strategists figure it may be that Mother Nature will actually decide who wins the seat. In this strange but competitive race to replace former Anaheim state Sen. John Seymour, campaign officials said they are expecting one of the lowest voter turnouts ever in Orange County, at the same time that they are seeing the largest number of absentee ballots ever filed in a special election.

Today may be Election Day in the state's 35th Senate District, but some officials think it's possible that almost half the votes that will be cast in this special election were already turned in before the polls even opened. The county registrar of voters office said that 18,368 people voted by mail as of Monday, returning more absentee ballots than in any other special election in Orange County.

Assemblyman John R. Lewis, a 10-year veteran legislator and one of Sacramento's most conservative lawmakers, was the top vote-getter in a special election Tuesday to replace former Anaheim state Sen. John Seymour, but he fell short of the 50% margin needed to avoid a runoff. Lewis will face Democrat Francis X. Hoffman and Libertarian Eric Sprik in a general election on May 14.

Relatively unknown candidates have often been more precise on the issues in the race for insurance commissioner than the leaders who spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on television ads to state, without much elaboration, that they will enforce Proposition 103. Democrat Michael Blanco, an Alhambra city councilman, has campaigned in scores of forums in strong, blunt language for implementation of no fault auto insurance.

Wes Bannister admits his statewide campaign seemed improbable. He had virtually no name recognition outside his city. He had a modest campaign war chest of about $80,000--not enough for any television ads. He had no statewide political experience, having never run for any office except the City Council. Despite these drawbacks, Bannister topped a field of five candidates last week to win the Republican nomination for state insurance commissioner.

Lewis of Orange. A brief statement issued by the executive committee did not give any details about how the party's rules were violated by the letter from Reed's campaign.

Their conservative rhetoric may sound the same, but the three veteran Assembly members vying for the vacant state Senate seat in Orange County have very different records when it comes to the raison d'etre of the Legislature--making laws. Assemblywoman Doris Allen (R-Cypress) has sponsored and passed the most legislation of the bunch, including bills with statewide impact in the areas of education and recreational fishing.
