San Mateo County voters, who chose a dead man for sheriff last summer, voted to fill his seat with a live replacement in a special election. Undersheriff Leonard Cardoza, who has been serving as acting sheriff since the June election, won 58% of the vote to beat a field of five opponents. Cardoza, 52, is a 26-year veteran of the department. The election was set up after the posthumous reelection last June of Brendan Maguire, a popular incumbent who died of a heart attack in mid-campaign.

Brendan Maguire stands a good chance of being reelected sheriff of wealthy, woodsy San Mateo County on Tuesday. That may not sound unusual, but consider that Brendan Maguire is dead. And the oddest thing of all is that even if Maguire wins Tuesday's vote, no one may ever know about it. Maguire, 53, suffered a heart attack and died April 21 in the middle of an election campaign that he--and many others--expected to earn him his second term in office.

San Mateo County voters, who chose a dead man for sheriff in a controversial election last summer, voted much more quietly to fill his seat with a living-and-breathing undersheriff in a special election on Tuesday. Undersheriff Leonard Cardoza, who has served as acting sheriff since last June's election, handily won 58% of the vote to beat a field of five opponents, the county registrar of voters said Wednesday. Cardoza, 52, is a 26-year veteran of the department.

Gray Davis have arrived via special delivery at county registrars' offices around the state. "We got hit yesterday with 30,000 new signatures," said Suzanne Slupsky, Orange County's assistant registrar of voters, on Friday. "And we got some more boxes in today."
