South County Election Guide August 2020

By Gloria Lloyd, News Editor

A number of local primary races will be decided Tuesday, Aug. 4, and considering how many people are voting by mail or absentee, the Call Newspapers Election Guide is coming your way earlier than ever before. Forward to your friends and relatives who haven’t voted yet, and here’s everything you need to know before voting in person Aug. 4 or by mail before that.

Satellite voting locations are open, including the South County Government Center site. Free notary services for ballots will be available there or at the library, and ballots can be dropped off at the site too.

Everything you need to know about voting by mail can be found here. To find your polling place and a sample ballot, click here.

But who will you vote for? The candidates have spent their summer answering our comprehensive candidate questionnaires, which cover every topic you could possibly want to know ahead of the election.
