Apparently, a host of incumbent elected leaders across Orange County forgot there was an election earlier this month.

And today, Registrar of Voters Neal Kelley is expected to ask county supervisors to reappoint incumbents from several community service districts to seats they forgot to seek.

Dozens of canyon residents are also expected to show up today at the weekly meeting of the county Board of Supervisors asking them to stick with the incumbents on the Silverado Modjeska Recreation and Parks District.

The small parks district is involved in a lawsuit against a local developer and the county.

Other community service districts that need reappointment because no one sought election are the Capistrano Bay Community Services District, the Three Arch Bay Community Services District and the Sunset Beach Sanitary District.


Due to an editing error, an earlier version of this report gave the incorrect day for Neal Kelley’s request to the board. The correct day is Tuesday, Nov. 23.
