It’s Election Day, and voters on the Central Coast are looking at a number of races, and ballot measures.
California voters face more than half dozen major decisions, including the governor’s, lieutenant governor’s, and Secretary of State’s races.
Perhaps the biggest race facing the region is for the 24th District Congressional seat.
The District includes all of Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo counties, and pits longtime incumbent Lois Capps against eight challengers.
Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo County voters will decide the 35th District Assembly race, which includes parts of both counties.
Santa Barbara and Ventura County voters will settle the 37th District Assembly race.
In Santa Barbara County, the two big races are for sheriff, and the Second District Supervisorial seat. There’s also Measure M, a controversial proposal which calls for the financially strapped county to spend more to try to reduce its road, and facilities maintenance backlog.
In San Luis Obispo County, voters will weigh in on two county supervisorial seats, the DA’s race, and the county clerk’s post.
The polls close at 8 tonight.
KCLU will be with you this evening, with election updates.
