Quick Take:

The battle over Measure O is many things to many people, but at its base, it is an attempt by residents to push through...

Tomorrow is the day. We’ll see some national reckoning, and as we keep one eye on those results on our TVs, we want the other in-the-know about what we’ve decided in Santa Cruz County. As we have throughout the fall election season, our newsroom team of 10 will keep you up to date. Stay logged into Lookout.

If you haven’t voted yet, it’s time. Our complete election coverage is here to help you with those final decisions. If you’ve voted already, make plans for Tuesday evening.

This is what we’ll be providing:

  • We’ll be fastest with the vote counts, relaying the latest results,to you in handy, mobile-readable chart form, as reported by Santa Cruz County Clerk Tricia Webber. Our team has put together 38 charts, which one-by-one will tell us who’s up and who’s down, which contests are fairly decided – and which may take days (or weeks) to know. And we’ll alert you via email – or sign up for our text alerts as well – as soon as each tranche of numbers comes in. Share the signups with friends who want the latest.
  • You can find the top race you’re most concerned about in a separate story, and we’ll keep you apprised of the count, and the color behind it in our Election Central blog.
  • Our correspondents are fanning out around the county to see what the candidates and measures leaders are saying as the vote comes in, and we’ll relay that to you.
  • We’ll provide useful links within our election night coverage to all we’ve covered during the Campaign.

All of this builds on our work during the long campaign.
