Sonoma County elections officials are in the process of mailing ballots to all registered voters in five jurisdictions for Nov. 2 elections.
Voters will receive ballots in the city of Sonoma, Occidental Community Services District, Kenwood Fire Protection District, Sonoma Valley Health Care District and Timber Cove County Water District.
In Sonoma, residents will decide among three candidates for a vacant City Council seat. Three contestants are running for two full-term directorships in the Occidental Community Services District, and the Timber Cove County Water District has four candidates competing for three board seats.
Two parcel tax measures are also before voters. Measure E would establish a new special tax in the Kenwood Fire Protection District, while Measure F would extend by 10 years an existing $250 annual parcel tax in the Sonoma Valley Health Care District.
These are the only jurisdictions in the county that have elections scheduled for Nov. 2. Voters who do not reside in any of these jurisdictions do not have an election this November.
Any voter who needs their vote-by-mail ballot right away may pick one up at the Sonoma County Registrar of Voters Office at 435 Fiscal Drive in Santa Rosa, or authorize somebody else to pick up their ballot for them with a signed note.
Officials said if a voter never receives a ballot in the mail or needs a replacement, the last day to request a ballot be mailed to them is Oct. 26.
Instructions on returning the ballots are included in the ballot materials sent to voters.
More information is available on the registrar’s website.
