As election day nears, polls show that more hangs in the balance than many voters think

On Nov. 7, residents of Santa Cruz County who bother to vote will have a hefty ballot to parse: a presidential race, a senate contest, national and state legislative battles; eight statewide ballot measures, city council races, a board of supervisors seat and a variety of local issues.

But voting is nothing compared to running for public office--a difficult and grinding experience under the best of circumstances. Metro Santa Cruz wishes good luck to all candidates, whether or not they receive our endorsement.

Candidate Endorsements: National and state offices, plus county and local races.

Propositions and Ballot Measures: State and local issues.

Selected Endorsements: A summary of Metro Santa Cruz's endorsements, plus a list of useful voter websites.
