Inyo and Mono also have a Congressional race in new District 8.  There are 13 candidates which some reports have said is the most candidates in a California congressional race on record.  Inyo and Mono historically have a high voter turn-out and so even our sparsely populated are is critical in this race.  A run-off is expected.
