Election endorsements in the works

AAND they’re OFF!

The ballots formerly known as “absentees”, for the use of those who will vote by mail, or by hand delivery to the county clerk, will be mailed out next week. When registered voters have them in hand, they can vote at home right away (even though it’s only October) and mail them back (don’t forget that stamp) or take them to the Alameda County Registrar of Voters Office, 1225 Fallon Street, Room G-1,Oakland, CA 94612. Or they can just show up at that office and vote there.

And if they forget to do any of these things, they can hand deliver their ballots to their local polling place on Election Day, November 8.

There is still time to register in a variety of ways, right up until 15 days before the election. Look here for the details.

It’s customary for publications of various sorts to endorse candidates, and since some of our readers will be voting next week, we should get down to brass tacks.

This weekend I’ll be working on a roundup of all credible endorsements, to be posted in the "Election Section" in this issue as fast as I can get around to it. Stay tuned.
