Senator Boxer to Vote Early
BY Gene Silver

Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., will be casting her  ballot Tuesday for the Nov. 2 general election, joining hundreds of Riverside  County residents who are getting their votes in early.

Boxer, a resident of Rancho Mirage, is slated to cast her ballot around  10 a.m. at the Riverside County Registrar of Voters office on Gateway Drive in  Riverside.

The three-term incumbent's Republican challenger is former Hewlett- Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, who has underscored her executive experience in the  private sector and anti-tax position while characterizing Boxer as a tax-and- spend liberal.

Boxer's camp has pointed to Fiorina's downsizing at HP as evidence of  corporate greed and highlighted the senator's support for the $862 billion  stimulus bill and ``clean energy'' projects as contributors to job growth.

Boxer's early vote will not be counted until a week before the Nov. 2  election.
