Voting day in election to replace former Assemblyman Mike Duvall

November 17, 2009 |  7:00 am

Mikeduvall Voters in northern Orange County go to the polls today in a special election to replace former Republican Assemblyman Mike Duvall of Yorba Linda, who resigned suddenly in September in the wake of a sex scandal.

Polling places will be open from 7 a.m.to 8 p.m.

Three Republicans, one Democrat and one Green Party candidate are on the open-primary ballot in this GOP stronghold. If no one wins a majority today, there will be a Jan. 12 runoff among the top vote-getters in each party.

Duvall had told a fellow legislator about his sexual exploits with a lobbyist or two without realizing that the remarks, made during a lull at a committee hearing, had been recorded. The tape was later broadcast by a television news station.

Additional information about today's election is available at ocvote.com.
