Santa Clara County


[pullquote] Watch videos of candidates facing off and also ballot measure arguments – both pro and con. Before every election, the Media Center provides video-recorded voter resources for every contested local election in Atherton, East Palo Alto, Menlo Park, and Palo Alto. These include candidate debates and debates on local and county measures. In many cases, we invite candidates and measure speakers to record a five-minute statement so voters can evaluate them side-by-side. We frequently partner with the League of Women Voters on this programming.[/pullquote]
