Voters will head to the polls today to select candidates in political parties for the Nov. 2 election as well as vote on a slate of state propositions.
Polls in Orange County open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. To find polling places in your neighborhood, visit the county Registrar of Voters website at www.ocvote.com/vote/polling.htm.
Here's a rundown of some of the items on the ballot with local implications:
Voters in Costa Mesa will be asked to vote on a citywide ballot initiative, Measure C. If passed, the initiative would restrict the land use of the Orange County Fairgrounds at its present 150-acre site in Costa Mesa to fair and exposition uses. Should the measure pass, the annual county fair also would remain at that site, and the land could not be developed for residential uses, retail or gaming, among other potential uses.
