Voters Heading To Polls To Decide Local Races
Sonora, CA — It is Election Day, and voters are heading out to decide who will be on the Sonora City Council, Board of Supervisors, Assembly, US Congress and other seats of interest.
Polling locations opened at seven o’clock this morning, and your specific location is listed on your voter ID card. To view a map of the polling locations in Tuolumne County, click here. You can also stop by the main election office at 2 S. Green Street in Sonora to vote up until 8pm.
New this year, vote by mail ballots will be counted through Friday, assuming that they are post marked by today.
Some races will be decided today while others will simply move on to the November General Election. Under California’s open primary system, the top two vote-getters in the race for Assembly, Congress and Senate will move on to November, regardless of party affiliation. In the Board of Supervisor races, if a candidate receives over 50% of the vote, they win outright. However, if no one receives over 50%, the top two vote-getters move to a runoff during the General Election in November. The Sonora City Council race will be decided today, with the top three vote-getters winning the open seats. Click here to see the various candidates.
