For Lisette Estrella-Henderson of Vacaville, her race to gain the job she now holds, superintendent of the Solano County Office of Education, was never in doubt: She was unopposed, had been so for months, but she is now officially elected.
By 11 p.m. Tuesday night, her total vote count, with 77 of 167 percent of county precincts reporting, was 36,278.
(As expected for a midterm election year, voter turnout was relatively light. Some 220,000 Solano County residents are registered voters, and John Gardner, assistant registrar of voters, predicted 50,000 to 60,000 would cast ballots.)
