ADVISORY - IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE 28TH STATE SENATE
DISTRICT CONTEST ON THE NOVEMBER 2, 2010 GENERAL ELECTION BALLOT
Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan issued an alert to voters in
the 28th State Senate District concerning the recent death of State
Senator Jenny Oropeza, candidate for the 28th State Senate Contest on
the November 2, 2010 General Election ballot.
In accordance with California State law, when a candidate for office
passes away within a period of 68 days before an election (August 26th
in this instance), his or her name shall remain on the ballot and the
election conducted as scheduled. This means Oropeza is still an active
candidate on the November 2nd General Election ballot.
Should Oropeza receive the majority of votes cast in the General
Election, she will be certified as the winner in the final certification
of election results. The 28th State Senate seat will be declared vacant
once the Senate term begins on December 6th. The Governor will then
have 14 days to declare a Special Election to fill the vacancy.
The RR/CC has issued a "Voter Alert" to be displayed in all polling
places within the 28th State Senate district (See attachment following).
Further information can be obtained by calling the RR/CC at (562)
466-1310. Additional information about the November 2nd General
Election is available online at the RR/CC website www.lavote.net.
