Third District Orange County Supervisor Special Election

In the special election to fill the vacant Orange County 3rd District Supervisor seat, Irvine Mayor Don Wagner continues to lead over former Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez by five percentage points. There were seven candidates on the ballot.

The seat became vacant when Todd Spitzer became Orange County District Attorney. The Orange County Registrar of Voters’ website indicates Wagner has 42 percent of the votes while Sanchez has 37 percent. And there are still an estimated 27-hundred ballots left to count.

The 3rd District spans Yorba Linda, Anaheim Hills, Orange, Villa Park, Tustin, Irvine and areas of unincorporated Orange County.

Whomever is elected will serve through the end of next year, and may seek re-election.
