More than 30 people were lined up outside the registrar's office in Oakland at 5 p.m. Friday, said registrar's spokesman Guy Ashley. Verification of information on nomination papers was done over the weekend.

Stark, first elected in 1972, will run unopposed for his party's candidacy in the 13th Congressional District. Two Democratic challengers withdrew from the race.Raymond Chui, an Alameda County Republican Central Committee member, will be his party's 13th District congressional nominee.

In the 18th Assembly District, Colleen Sill, another county Republican Central Committee member, didn't qualify for the race against Filipovich. Democratic incumbent Mary Hayashi, D-Hayward, will be challenged by Jason Teramoto in the June primary.

The registrar's office confirmed that county Supervisor Nate Miley will be opposed by Steve White in Miley's bid for a third four-year term.
