Request for city clerks. Please identify the district and terms of your councilmembers on your website if you have district elections. It will help the voters, not to mention baffled columnists, figure out who is on first base and who is out. We won’t know the entire list of candidates until Aug. 12 (then add another few days if an incumbent is not running). Lots of extra work for city clerks and the county Elections Office.
According to county Chief Elections Officer Mark Church: “The 2022 November General Election is gearing up to be one of the largest held in San Mateo County given that, all governing board elections are now held on even-numbered years. Combined with district elections, the number of jurisdictions participating in this election is estimated to be over 70.”
