June 5, 2012, Election

Susan Hough and Michael Lusk of the League of Women Voters Education Fund were here at Central Park Library Tuesday night with nonpartisan, educational  information on the June 5, 2012, election.  Voters will make candidate choices for the November election which includes selecting a new U.S. President and many other offices.  This election is the first that chooses the top two primary winners in many offices.  Two candidates from the same political party could be running for the same office in November.  Read more at

Check the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters to see if you are registered to vote.  You have until Monday, May 21, 2012, to register.

Learn how to evaluate ballot measures in this article which includes a link to the Secretary of State's Cal-Access site which tells who is financing candidates and issues and how much money is being spent.

Attend local candidate forums (or if you live closer to San Jose these candidate forums) so you know who is going to represent you either in the legislature or in judicial office.  Read about the election in the Easy Voter Guide.  Visit to see which district you are in and who is running.
