County prepares to vote Tuesday

LAKE COUNTY – On Tuesday, Lake County voters will make their way to the polls – or turn in their absentee ballots – in the first of three opportunities to vote this year.


This coming June, the county will hold primary elections for supervisorial seats in Districts 1, 4 and 5, and the presidential election and final supervisorial elections will take place Nov. 4.


California Secretary of State Debra Bowen points out that 2008 is a unique presidential election year; it's the first time since 1952 that no incumbent president or vice president is running for the highest office in the nation.


Tuesday's presidential primary with be combined with state ballot measures including:


  • Proposition 91, which establishes a constitutional amendment to prohibit the state from retaining certain transportation funds in the state general fund;

  • Proposition 92, a constitutional amendment relating to the establishment of a system of independent public community college districts and board of governors

  • Proposition 93, which would create a constitutional amendment that reduces the time a person may serve in the state legislature from 14 to 12 years, and allows them to serve all of those years in one or both houses;

  • Propositions 94, 95, 96, and 97, which ratify new Indian gaming compacts with four large tribes, allowing them to have more gaming machines at their casinos and requiring them to make larger payments to the state.


Polls open at 7 a.m. and close 8 p.m. Tuesday.


In case you need some last-minute information on ballot measures, Bowen's office offers the Easy Voter Guide, which can be found at www.voterguide.sos.ca.gov.
