Molina received 33 percent of the vote, Aceves 30 percent, Superior Court Commissioner Cynthia Zuzga 27 percent, and sole practitioner Michael Ribons 10 percent. In the ballot designation worksheet she submitted to election officials, Molina explained the designation this way: I have represented many clients who are victims of Domestic Violence and have helped them obtain legal status and benefits under the Violence Against Womens Act, U-Visas, as well as assisted them in getting restraining orders against their abusers.
