Update 1:35 p.m. I went to four of nine polling places in IB and found that women made up 14 of 20 volunteers, and about half of all volunteers seemed to be under 30. Did you find the same?
Since the last presidential election, voter registration has increased from 10,818 to 11,106, despite a 2.5 percent decline in population. 2010 census results state that the population of Imperial Beach is about 26,000.
It’s time to hit the polls, Imperial Beach.
Months of campaign efforts come to an end Tuesday as local voters decide who will lead the city, and who they’ll send to Sacramento and Washington, D.C. There are a baker’s dozen of state and local ballot measures to approve or reject.
IB will vote for candidates to fill two open City Council seats, four school board seats in two school districts, and a State Assembly representative. Prop. S will decide whether Imperial Beach will allow medical marijuana dispensaries, and Prop. Y is a $26 million bond measure for the South Bay Union School District.
Elsewhere, Californians will vote on 11 propositions.
And, oh yeah, voters will also choose a president.
