In recent weeks, the Morgan Hill Times has been profiling candidates for local races in the Nov. 3 election.
Election Day is Nov. 3, and voters must make sure they are registered by Oct. 19. Early voting has begun at the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters office, and election officials have placed four ballot drop boxes throughout Morgan Hill for voters to submit their ballots any time before 5pm Nov. 3. Anyone who wants to request an absentee ballot must do so by Oct. 27, though election officials warn voters to turn in their ballots as early as possible.
Vote centers will be open for four days, starting Oct. 31, leading up to Election Day on Nov. 3.
In the local city council and school trustee races, only voters who live within the districts up for election can cast a ballot. City Council District A includes southwest Morgan Hill. District C encompasses the northwestern quadrant of the city. To find out which district you live in, visit the city’s website at morganhill.ca.gov.
MHUSD Trustee Area 5 is the northwest portion of the school district boundaries. To find out what Trustee Area you live in, visit mhusd.org.
There are also a number of measures and propositions on the Nov. 3 ballot. These include the Valley Water Measure S parcel tax for Safe, Clean Water and Natural Flood Protection Program; and the Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority Measure T parcel tax.
