State Assemblyman Sam Farr of Carmel, a liberal Democrat known for his advocacy of high-technology jobs and environmental protections, has been elected to succeed Leon E. Panetta in the House of Representatives. Panetta resigned his seat in January, at the start of his ninth term, to become President Clinton's director of the Office of Management and Budget. Farr defeated Pebble Beach attorney William McCampbell, a Republican who specializes in international law, by 51.9% to 42.

Plans by Los Angeles County to send trash by train to the High Desert have been derailed, at least for now, by voters in San Bernardino County. Voters said Tuesday that they are not necessarily opposed to huge garbage dumps atop High Desert aquifers. But they specifically rejected Rail-Cycle, a private landfill designed to accommodate much of Southern California's trash for 100 years.

Political operatives have been trying in recent days to reinvigorate earthquake-jolted campaigns in Northern California in time for Tuesday's election, but they expected light turn-out and even more hesitation than normal to approve money measures. Although there are no statewide issues on the ballot, scores of local issues throughout California will be decided this Tuesday. In Orange and San Bernardino counties, voters were being asked to pay for highway improvements and transit projects.

More aftershocks--this time the political kind--rumbled through San Francisco on Tuesday, but incomplete election returns made it unclear whether earthquake-weary residents were in a mood to authorize construction of a new baseball park or grant live-in lovers some rights enjoyed by married couples. With many precincts still to report--and thousands of absentee ballots yet to be counted--both measures were losing but only slightly late Tuesday.

Having invested $400 million in refurbishing the aging Rancho Seco nuclear power plant, metropolitan Sacramento voters narrowly rejected a proposal to abandon the plant and decided instead to see exactly what their money bought. By a margin of 50.4% to 49.6%, voters defeated Measure B, which would have closed the troubled but recently refurbished plant. Rather, it will continue to operate for an 18-month trial period, as outlined in rival Measure C, which was favored by 51.

A pair of ballot measures to be decided by voters in San Bernardino County next week will also affect Los Angeles County residents for decades to come, although they have no say in the matter. The outcome might resolve where Los Angeles County--and the rest of Southern California--will dump much of its trash when it runs out of space at its own landfills.

The two main Republicans hoping to take on Gov. Jerry Brown in the fall have failed to vote in many elections, according to documents and interviews. Assemblyman Tim Donnelly has cast a ballot in about half of the elections held since 1995, while former U.S. Treasury official Neel Kashkari has voted in roughly 60% of elections since he turned 18. Spotty voting records have dogged previous unsuccessful gubernatorial candidates, including 2010 Republican nominee Meg Whitman and 1998 Democratic candidate Al Checchi.

As secretary of state in 2001, Bill Jones moved to rid California of the type of antiquated voting machines that helped throw the presidential election into turmoil in Florida. Then last year he sponsored a successful $200-million industry-backed bond measure that gave counties money to buy high-tech replacements. Now, the former elections chief is a paid consultant to one of the major voting machine firms vying for that business.
