California and Santa Cruz County Election Results 11/8/2016

First, all local measures passed, along with State Proposition 51, 52, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 63, 64, 66, and 67. State Proposition 53, 60, 61, 62, and 65 failed.

Trump won the presidency, the Republicans won 51 seats in the Senate giving them the majority but not a super majority, and they also won 239 seats in the House of Representatives giving them the majority. Meaning the Republicans hold power in all three branches of government. Since they have not approved Obama’s pick for Supreme Court, they will be deciding that seat as well, and all four branches of government will be conservative for the foreseeable future. Republicans also won the majority of Governorships . . .

Make your Voice Heard & VOTE ~ see our non-partisan Voting Guide

Today is election day, polling locations open at 7:00am and close this evening at 8:00pm. You can look up your Polling Location here, if you are voting by mail see list of voting locations towards the middle of this post to drop off your ballot in person.

You cannot campaign within 100 feet of any polling place. This includes campaign materials and clothing. So please wear that campaign t-shirt another day.

If you have any problems voting in person or by mail call (831) 454-2060 or Secretary of State’s toll-free Voter Hotline at (800) 345-VOTE.

If you haven’t decided how to vote yet, check out our non-partisan Voting Guide. Below at the end of this post we have the portion of our voting guide for local Measures D, E, N, and O. Articles listed under “Full Text” are neutral, under “Vote NO” and “Vote YES” are arguing that side of the issue. We also have our article from last year regarding the Fight to Save the Plastic Bag Ban. Good Times also did two voting guide articles this year. The first County Ballot Measures Explained gives you a short paragraph telling you the purpose of the measure and some background information. In similar fashion Santa Cruz County Elections 2016: The Candidates informs you about each candidate.

Our guide gives you a one stop shop to all available information for voter’s in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Including information that usually isn’t as easy to find and may not be listed on the state and county election websites.
