On Election Day, the voters will finally have their say after a year of campaigning by the politicians. While many voters have become frustrated by the tone of the campaign at all levels, I hope that doesn’t drive down voter participation. It would be a testament to our system if we have a strong voter turnout in this crucial election.
The presidential contest obviously is the highest profile race, but in California, we also have several important state initiatives on the ballot, as well as local contests for seats on city councils, school boards and the Legislature.
If you haven’t voted already by mail, the polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. If you didn’t get your mail-in ballot sent off in time, you can drop it off at the polls.
Let your voice be heard.
