If you’re an early voter or beginning your research, our web site can be a great resource for you. We now have candidate statements and ballot measure arguments up on our site with a slew of candidate forums coming over the next few weeks. Most recently is a candidate forum for PAUSD school board (see video below). We have a page for races on Palo Alto residents’ ballots and another page for San Mateo County election contests. We also have a Pros and Cons presentation by the Palo Alto League of Women Voters – on all the State Initiatives.
Our Media Center has a long tradition of generating and publicizing voter resources before every election. For many years the Media Center has teamed up with the Palo Alto and the South San Mateo County League of Women Voters branches to generate video recordings of community-based candidate forums. Equally important are the candidate statements and ballot measure arguments that are recorded in the Media Center TV studio for the many election races for which there are no public forums. Voters get a rare opportunity to watch and compare candidates for offices ranging from the Menlo Park Fire Protection District to the Midpeninsula Open Space District.
On Election Night there will be a regional analysis of election results that will involve our Media Center in collaboration with other media centers in San Jose and Mountain View. It can be viewed LIVE on the regional cable channel 27.
