Today is election day, and in addition to national and state-wide races, Alameda voters will cast ballots on a number of local candidates and measures.

Nine candidates are running for three seats on the Alameda Unified School District Board of Trustees, including incumbents Trish Spencer, Ron Mooney and Niel Tam.

Seven candidates are running for two seats on Alameda City Council, including former councilmember Tony Daysog. A third seat on council will open up if Alameda Vice-Mayor Rob Bonta wins his 18th Assembly District contest against Abel Guillen and resigns his council seat.

Four candidates are running for director seats on the City of Alameda Health Care District Board, including incumbents Michael McCormick and Jordan Battani. Newcomer Leland Traiman is running as well, as is former school board member Tracy Jensen. The board oversees Alameda Hospital and some $6 million in taxpayer money raised each year through a parcel tax.

Kevin Kearney, Kevin Kennedy and Doug Linney are running unopposed for the City of Alameda Auditor, City of Alameda Treasurer and East Bay Municipal Utility District Ward 5 Director seats, respectively.

Likewise, Measure D, a parks protection measure put on the ballot by an Alameda citizens group has been effectively unopposed, and is expected to pass by a wide margin.

If you are a vote-by-mail voter who has been holding on to your ballot, be sure to turn it in at an Alameda County polling station – it will be too late to mail it. Polls close at 8:00 p.m.

You can use the Alameda County Registrar of Voters website to find your local polling station.
