Decision Time Nov. 6

October 30, 2012

Another polling place added by ROV

It should be a little easier for the people of Lucerne Valley to cast their votes this time around.

The San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters has added another polling place for the Tuesday (Nov. 6) election.

Some locals complained to The Leader and to the ROV that the only voting location in the June primary was too remote.

That location, Fire Station No. 7 at 10575 Dido Avenue, is still in use, but the ROV has added another polling place at the Lucerne Valley Community Center, located at 33187 Old Woman Springs Road (near Pioneer Park).

Voters must use the polling place designated on their voter guide/sample ballot. To find out which polling place to use, check your voter guide/sample ballot or visit sbcounty.gov/rov and click “voting.”

Early voting is available now through Monday at the Hesperia Branch Library at 9650 7th Avenue in Hesperia or at the San Bernardino County Elections Office at 777 East Rialto Avenue in San Bernardino. Early voting is available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. everyday except Sunday.

On Election Day, voters can cast their votes at their designated polling place or at the Hesperia or San Bernardino locations listed above. All polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day.

In addition to the Presidential election and a number of statewide referendums, four local/regional races are being contested:

• Paul Cook, a state assemblyman from Yucca Valley, takes on fellow Republican Gregg Imus, a home builder from Lake Arrowhead, in the newly created 8th Congressional District.

• In the newly created State Assembly District 33, Democrat John Coffey, a paraeducator from the Newberry Springs area, takes on Republican assemblyman Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks.

• Incumbent Neil Derry of Redlands faces challenger James Ramos, former chairman of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, in the San Bernardino County Third District Supervisor race.

• Three candidates area vying for two seats on the Victor Valley Community College District board. Incumbent Republicans Joseph W. Brady and Joe Range face Democratic challenger John R. Pinkerton.

Election results will not be published in next week’s paper because The Leader goes to press on Mondays. Results will appear online at LucerneValleyLeader.com and in the following week’s paper.
