Early-voting options begin for November election

Local in-person early voters started submitting ballots for the upcoming election on Tuesday (Oct. 11).

Election watchers have predicted that early voting could make up to one-third of the vote this fall. Santa Clara County’s Registrar of Voters opens to walk-in voters 29 days before the Nov. 8 election and will also be mailing ballots beginning Tuesday. The registrar’s office, at 1555 Berger Drive, Building 2, in San Jose, is open for voting weekdays during regular business hours. During the final two weekends before the election, the registrar will operate early-voting centers around the region, with the closest one to Los Altos at Palo Alto’s Rinconada Library, 1213 Newell Road.

The Town Crier asked the candidates to share their qualifications and insight into some of the issues pertinent to residents. Although a city council vote last week took a proposed ordinance change off the table, discussion of how the town regulates development of substandard lots, or those under an acre in size, remains a hot topic.
