Election Day polls are open. While many voters have already cast their votes through early polling or mail-in ballots -- voters had returned 307,966 out of 700,709 mail-in ballots in Santa Clara County by Nov. 6, according to the Registrar of Voters -- many others are preparing to head to the polls today.
Locally, Palo Alto voters will decide on new members of the City Council and Board of Education, and district representatives for the state Assembly, U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, as well as Santa Clara County measures that could impact affordable housing and transportation.
Over the past several weeks, the Palo Alto Weekly has interviewed the candidates, hosted debates and reported on the issues, and now we've assembled everything here in one place to help you make informed, last-minute voting decisions.
In the links below, you’ll find information about each City Council and school board candidate’s stances on the issues, what you need to know to vote on local issues and how to find your polling place.
