Laguna Beach residents flocked to the polls Tuesday to cast their votes and determine which candidates will proceed to the November ballot.
The June 7 primary election is the first to use California’s newly redrawn district map, and has seats up for grabs at the local and national levels. Public safety, inflation, and gas prices were among the top priorities some Laguna Beach residents identified at the polls.
As of Tuesday afternoon, about 4,484 mail-in ballots had been returned by Laguna Beach voters, according to data from the Orange County Registrar of Voters. About 2,429 were Democrat, and 1,211 were Republican. Another 707 were nonpartisan.
