Because Board of Supervisors is a non-partisan race my name will appear on all ballots. Ballots will be mailed out on February 3rd and Election Day is March 3rd.

Heads Up!

Independent voters registered as NPP (No Party Preference) will not be able to vote for a Democrat in any of the other partisan races at the polls or by mail unless they ask for a Democratic ballot. These voters can also simply re-register as Democrats (recommended).
