First Aid for Voters

Smart voters will want to bookmark the Media Center’s Election Page and check it weekly through Election Day, November 6. It includes internet links to all the candidate forums, candidate statements, and ballot measure debates/statements that we record. At this point you will find videos for 4 different Santa Clara County wide races as well as a debate on the controversial Palo Alto Measure C to allow three medical marijuana dispensaries in town. There is also a Palo Alto City Council candidates’ forum.

Voters in San Mateo County will find three county-wide races covered and statements pro and con on several heated local measures in Atherton and Menlo Park.

There’s also a link to a League of Women Voters’ presentation of pro and con arguments for all of the State Propositions.

In the coming weeks, we’ll add candidate forums for Menlo Park and East Palo Alto City Councils, the Atherton Town Council, Ravenswood City Elementary School District Board, and the Palo Alto Unified School District Board.

In addition to the internet links on our Election Page

there are links that show you all the upcoming playback times on local cable TV channels.

Don’t be clueless on Election Day. Check out the videos and make informed choices knowing how candidates present themselves and the arguments that clarify ballot measures.
