Election 2020: The Basics

As we enter 2020, a lot of attention is being paid to the presidential and congressional campaigns.  It’s important to remember, however, that local elections have a far greater impact on your day-to-day life.

Local politics influence all of the decisions that have a direct influence on our day-to-day lives, from the laws we’re most worried about abiding by, to the streets we drive on and whether or not they’re riddled with potholes, to whether or not we’ll have to pay for plastic bags at the grocery store, and more.

–Becky Kip, “The Hill”

Our Responsibility

The Lodi Valley Chronicle serves the citizens of 5 municipalities, plus the school district.  As “Lodi’s Newspaper”, it’s our responsibility to educate those citizens so you can make informed choices at each step along the way.  We will do this by explaining the election process–including your rights and responsibilities as a voter–questioning the candidates on their views and goals, giving candidates a venue from which to communicate with the voters, and giving voters a place to question the candidates.

Open Seats

The deadline for submitting nomination papers in most municipalities is Tuesday January 7th at 5:00 pm.  The following seats are up for election this year.
