Election coverage

(The November General election)…It is Tuesday.

Polls open at 7:00 am and will remain open until 8:00 pm. The hottest race Tuesday is the City Council Race in Calexico. There are several candidates on the ballot and there may not be two clear winners after all the votes are counted. There are two city council seats being voted on in Calexico. KXO am 1230 and FM 107.5 will begin broadcasting election results right after the polls close. The initial reports will traditionally be vote by mail ballots, since ballot boxes need to be transported to the Elections Department in El Centro from polling places around the County. Even with several state and local issues on the ballot, officials say voter turn-out for a General Election is usually moderate at best.
