Amy Mercado (D) has won the election for Orange County Property Appraiser.

Mercado, a two-term Democratic state representative, left her District 48 seat to run for appraiser. When she filed in May, she said, "I am passionate about making the move to serve Orange County at the local level and bringing a fresh perspective to the Property Appraiser's Office."

Mercado ran unopposed in the general election on Tuesday, after winning the Democratic primary in August. According to the Orange County Supervisor of Elections, she received 502,560 votes, or 96 percent.

Her primary win ended current Appraiser Rick Singh's hopes of securing another term in office.
