Seven people are running for two - and possibly three - open seats on Alameda's City Council, with the third seat opening up to the council race runner-up if Vice Mayor Rob Bonta is elected to the state Assembly. Which two candidates will get your vote? Voting will be open through Wednesday, and we'll post the results Friday.
In the meantime, Board of Education candidate Michael Robles-Wong topped our no-scientific voter poll last week, with 66 percent of the 126 people who participated saying they plan to vote for him in the upcoming school board race. Nielsen Tam came in second place, earning clicks from 57 percent of poll participants, and Ron Mooney came in third, with 56 percent.
Barbara Kahn came in fourth place in the poll, with 24 percent of participants saying they'll vote for her, and Trish Herrera Spencer came in fifth, with 22 percent. Tom Lynch, Kurt Peterson and Jon Murphy rounded out the voting, with 16 percent, 13 percent and nine percent of participants saying they're voting for each of those candidates.
The poll results can be viewed here.
More information on all of your local candidates and ballot measures is available in our Alameda Elections '12 election center. An additional poll featuring Alameda Health Care District candidates will be up later this week.
