Steve Rodermund, who wants to be Orange County's permanent registrar of voters, is having something of a job tryout next month. Rodermund, the interim registrar, is overseeing the county's portion of California's unprecedented gubernatorial recall election Oct. 7 and says the county will be ready. Last week, his office shipped out the first batch of absentee and sample ballots to the more than 1.3 million registered county voters.

Petitions bearing 12,001 signatures were filed at Mission Viejo City Hall on Thursday to recall City Councilman Robert A. Curtis, who maintains that he is the target of "a blatant power play by a large developer."

County officials aren't sure, partly because no one knows if all 135 candidates will remain on the ballot if the election is delayed.

In Los Angeles County, officials said they might have to lease additional voting machines to accommodate both the recall and the presidential primary election. But counties estimate that they have already spent as much as $35 million on the special election.

State Sen. David A. Roberti (D-Van Nuys) is holding a wide lead in his fight to beat back an April 12 recall election that has been largely organized by firearms rights advocates and is being closely watched nationally as a referendum on gun control.

Santa Ana Unified School District officials Wednesday moved the recall election of trustee Nativo V. Lopez to Feb. 4, three weeks ahead of the originally scheduled date. They switched the date in hopes of holding the special election on the same date as an anticipated election to fill a county supervisorial seat, which could save the school district tens of thousands of dollars. District officials said they learned Wednesday that the Orange County registrar of voters had picked Feb.

A federal judge delayed until Wednesday a decision on whether to postpone the gubernatorial recall election until March, when six urban counties, including Los Angeles, are expected to have new, more reliable voting machines. Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California are seeking to block the use of punch-card ballots in the Oct. 7 election, arguing that the equipment is too error-prone.

For one thing, the threshold to become a candidate was fairly low. A California resident needed only to collect 65 valid nomination signatures from members of his or her political party and pay a $3,500 administrative filing fee. Democratic and Republican hopefuls could forgo paying the filing fee if they collected 10,000 additional signatures.
