This is a big election year for state and county offices, with many candidates seeking election or re-election for various positions. For the first time, the State of Jefferson (SOJ) is hosting a candidates forum, on Tuesday, April 10, at the American Legion Hall, 4561 Greenstone Road, in Placerville.

The El Dorado County State of Jefferson Committee invites you to join for a social hour, when they will also be serving hot dogs, chips, beverages and desserts, from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. The meeting and forum will take place from 6:30 to 8 pm.

Because of the number of offices and candidates, Jefferson will host two forums, with the second on Tuesday, May 8th, same time and location. On April 10th, the SOJ committee is excited to have candidate for State Attorney General, El Dorado County resident, Judge Steven Bailey, as one of the forum participant.

Also participating, will be the candidates for El Dorado County Supervisor, District 4 and those seeking the seat of Treasurer-Tax Collector.  Announcements about the offices and candidates for the May meeting, will be announced later. Special district elections; school, fire, water, etc., will only be on the November ballot.

The SOJ Committee, cannot stress enough the importance of voting in the June 5th primary and being an informed voter, by using every opportunity to get know the candidates and the issues. Your vote on June 5th, will determine who will be on the final ballot, in the general election, on November 6th.

Voter registration forms will also be available at both the April 10th and May 8th meetings. Remember, if you or someone you know will turn the age of 18 before these election dates, they can register now.
