Advance voter turnout jumps nearly 19% from last Ontario election

Democrats are likely to nominate female veteran Mikie Sherrill, a Navy pilot and former federal prosecutor, who they believe is a good fit for this highly educated and suburban district.

While among Californians most eyes are on the race to replace Gov.

The election is pivotal for Republicans looking to end their mounting struggles and gain a stronger foothold in the nation's largest state.

Polls have opened in New Jersey, where Democratic and Republican voters will decide Senate and U.S. House races. Democrats have taken aim at 10 of the 14 House seats held by Republicans.

A random printing error on the voter roster in Los Angeles County caused widespread confusion in the midst of voting in the California primary on Tuesday. Under California law, Conditional Voter Registration (CVR) allows a prospective voter to register and cast a provisional ballot.

Democratic voters picked Menendez weeks after the Senate Ethics Committee rebuked him for accepting valuable gifts and failing to report them while using his position to advance the donor's personal business interests. In the Central Valley, Kern County Clerk Auditor Susan Rooney said 49,000 of the 233,000 mail ballots sent out had been turned in as of Tuesday morning.

Poll workers reported only a handful of people with outdated addresses or other issues that required some extra steps to vote on Tuesday. Dianne Feinstein, who is running for her sixth term.

"Taking a picture of a completed ballot - yours or anyone else's - is a violation of the Election Act because it violates the secrecy of the vote", it said on its website.

Elections Ontario says turnout has been high at advance polling stations across the province.

"I still consider myself an independent, but I just won't vote Republican because of what's going on", she said.

The key battlegrounds are seven districts, mostly in Southern California, where Hillary Clinton defeated then-candidate Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential race, making the districts targets this year. In Orange County, Democrats face exactly that problem, where a bevy of political newbies have crowded into some of the state's most competitive races and risk splitting the left-of-center vote, leaving the first and second spots to Republicans.

It's also possible Republicans may not secure a nomination spot in the challenge against 84-year-old Feinstein. Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, in the November runoff. Newsom, who was the mayor of San Francisco before assuming his current statewide post, is a Bay Area native with a deep support base in the northern part of the state.

For most of the campaign, Villaraigosa was seen as the most viable threat to Newsom's candidacy.

In Montana, Republicans will pick a candidate to take on Democratic Sen. The closing days of the race were marked as much by dueling complaints over that spending as by differences between the candidates, their priorities and their styles of governing.

"It was important (voting)", said Santa Maria voter Jason Johnston, "since the way it all dictates who is on the General Election for the top two". He easily won a second term and made an early declaration in 2015 that he meant to run for governor.

"I'm hoping that California continues to be a liberal bastion and be the resistance against the Trump administration", she said.

"I'm honored to get the president's endorsement because he's a businessman who is trying to get results and he is getting results", Cox said.

"It's hard to say that we have a fair and equal voting process when a large segment of the voting population isn't allowed to have a say in who the general election candidates will be", Toulouse Oliver wrote.
