You can register to vote at any time but must register one month before the next election. (For example, voters who registered up until Monday, October 22, 2012, were able to vote in the November 6, 2012 General Election.)
Marilyn Ezzy-Ashcraft and Tony Daysog are Alameda's newly elected Alameda City Council members. Stewart Chen, D.C., as the third-place finisher, was appointed to fill the vacancy left after former Vice-mayor Rob Bonta's win over Abel Guillen in the Assembly District 18 race. (This is according to the Alameda City Charter.)
New to the Alameda Unified School District Board of Trustees is our own Barbara Kahn, a former "brown bagger," who wants to implement our proposal for an AUSD Sunshine Ordinance. Incumbents Trish Spencer and Neil Tam return to the AUSD board.
Mike McCormick and Jordan Battani have been reelected to the City of Alameda Healthcare District (hospital) Board, which is now in the process of filling the vacancy left when hospital board member Stewart Chen, DC, resigned to take Rob Bonta's former seat on the City Council.
We hope that Jeff Cambra and Tracy Jensen, who left the League board to run for office, will resume their active participation in our League.
The LWV of Alameda is pleased that so many of its members have participated in civic elections and looks forward to seeing the League principles of open and transparent governance implemented from the dais.
--Kate Quick, LWVA President
