Tuesday is Election Day for California’s 2018 primary, and the following is a rundown of news stories for North Orange County residents about the race for the 39th Congressional District, district attorney, sheriff, the county Board of Supervisors, and the recall of state Sen. Josh Newman (D-Fullerton).

Turnout is expected to be low, making each vote more impactful than in larger-turnout elections. About 25 to 27 percent of registered voters are projected to cast ballots in Orange County, according to a rough estimate from elections officials.

Polls are open Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., and voters can also drop off their mail-in ballot at their polling place or mail it in to the county Registrar of Voters.
