UPDATED: Saturday, March 7, 9:10 a.m.

Five candidates competed in the special election to fill a state Senate seat for the 28th Senate District representing eastern Riverside County vacated by former Sen. Jeff Stone who accepted a presidential appointment Nov. 1, 2019.

Assemblymember Melissa Melendez, R-Lake Elsinore, registered nurse Anna Nevenic, Riverside County Board of Education member Elizabeth Romero, business owner John Schwab and businesswoman Joy Silver all battled to secure the seat for the district.

As of the time of this posting, Melendez leads that race at 41.5% of the votes, but without a majority of the votes she will square off against the second highest vote-getter. With 131,000 votes left to be counted, it’s too early to say if Elizabeth Romero who as of press time had 29,309 votes or 21.7% or Joy Silver who had 27,810 votes or 20.6% would be the second candidate in the May 12 special election called by Gov. Gavin Newsom.

At the county level, barring any unforeseen circumstances, it is likely that 1st District Supervisor Kevin Jefferies, 53.0%, and 3rd District Supervisor Chuck Washington, 57.4%, will both retain their seats.

Jerry Carlos with 33.8% of the vote leads over Murrieta City Councilman Kelly Seyarto, 28.6%, in the hotly contested race for the 67th Assembly District. Other contenders for that race all came in with less than 18% of the vote.

Here are the preliminary results for the primary election as of Saturday, March 7, at 9:10 a.m.

The next update from the Riverside County Registrar of Voters is expected at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 10.

UPDATED: Wednesday,  March 4, at 12:05 a.m.

The polls for the California Primary Election closed at 8 p.m. and Democrat Bernie Sanders has taken the league for delegates over former Vice President Joe Biden, who made an impressive Super Tuesday showing, winning Virginia, North Carolina, Alabama, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Arkansas and Minnesota.

Local races include five candidates competing in the special election to fill the seat for California’s 28th Senate District representing eastern Riverside County. The seat was vacated by former Sen. Jeff Stone who accepted a presidential appointment Nov. 1, leaving his spot up for grabs.

Assemblymember Melissa Melendez, R-Lake Elsinore, registered nurse Anna Nevenic, Riverside County Board of Education member Elizabeth Romero, business owner John Schwab and businesswoman Joy Silver are attempting to secure the seat for the district. If one of the candidates earns a majority of votes, that person will be the new senator. However, if there’s no majority winner, the top two vote-getters in the primary will square off in a May 12 special election called by Gov. Gavin Newsom.
