Here's a little help in doing your civic duty.
If you're not sure where to vote or who represents you, visit the Alameda County Voter Profile lookup page.
San Leandro voters will participate in three races of particular local relevance.
At the state level, three candidates hope to represent the 18th Assembly District, a new jurisdiction dominated by Oakland, but including Alameda and San Leandro.
They are: Alameda Vice Mayor Rob Bonta; Peralta Community College District trustee Abel Guillen; and AC Transit District director and fellow Joel Young. Guillen and Young are both from Oakland. All three candidates are Democrats.
This is the first year that state races will be governed by the "top-two" primary rule. The top two vote getters, regardless of party, will compete in the November general election.
So two of these Democrats will run against each other one again in November.
There are also two local government races of special interest in San Leandro.
One is a three way race for a Superior Court judgeship in Alameda County.
The candidates, all attorneys, are: Catherine Haley; Andrew Wiener; and Tara Flanagan.
The seat represents San Leandro, San Lorenzo, Castro Valley, and other parts of unincorporated Alameda County. The county school board is the intermediary between the state Department of Education and local school districts like those in San Leandro and San Lorenzo.
