Today is Election Day
Today is the final day for local voters to cast their ballots in a bevy of contests, including the local Measure C sales tax increase, a Measure B parcel tax for the Peralta Community College District, state Senate and Assembly races and more. Stay tuned right here for up-to-the-minute coverage of the results as they're announced. In the meantime, we've got some links to information about today's contests.
The Alameda County Registrar of Voters has got basic information about all of today's contests, plus a polling place lookup, vote-by-mail ballot tracking and results. The League of Women Voters' Smart Voter site has more detailed information on the contests and candidates.
We've also got some stories on the contests, including stories and a fact check piece on Measure C, a story on Peralta's proposed Measure B parcel tax and a fact check piece on claims made by candidates for the Assembly District 18 seat being vacated by Sandre Swanson.
Stay tuned here for live coverage, or join me on Twitter tonight @IslandMichele. And if you've got more informational links to add, feel free to include them below. We'll start our live election blog in this space before the pools close at 8 p.m.
