Notice of Public Examination Period for the Candidate Statements of Qualification and Ballot Designations for the March 12, 2019 Special Election to Fill a Vacancy in the office of Third District Supervisor
January 29, 2019 through February 7, 2019
Voters approved the County of Orange’s Charter, which requires the Board of Supervisors to call a special election to fill a vacancy on the Board not less than 56 days nor more than 70 days after a vacancy on the Board occurs. The Board of Supervisors called a Special Election to be held on March 12, 2019 to fill the vacancy in the office of Third District Supervisor arising from the vacancy created by the election of Todd Spitzer to the office of District Attorney.
The public may examine all candidate statements and ballot designations submitted for the official Voter Information Guide. A copy of the materials is available in the Orange County Registrar of Voters’ office and online at ocvote.gov. Any person may also obtain a copy of these materials from the Registrar of Voters. A fee for copies may be charged.
In light of the expedited nature of the special election, candidates viewing their own, as well as other candidate statements and ballot designations during the public examination period are strongly encouraged to notify the Registrar of Voters of any errors or concerns at the earliest opportunity so that errors may be addressed before sample ballots are prepared for printing and distribution. Any delays may risk interfering with the conduct of the election.
