By popular demand, we're happy to announce the return of Hoodline's Election Guide tool.
It's been a long road towards election day, but we're now one month from the opening of the polls. On Nov. 8th, not only will a bitterly contentious presidential election be decided, but many local politicians will be elected into office, and scores of propositions will pass or fail on the state and local level.
That means that it's time to start thinking about how you're going to vote on issues like taxing sugary drinks, banning tent encampments, and amending the affordable housing requirements for new development (in San Francisco), as well as legalizing marijuana, raising taxes on tobacco products, requiring condom use in porn shoots, and repealing the death penalty (on a state level).
We don't make endorsements here at Hoodline, but to help you make up your mind, we've again pulled together recommendations from more than 30 sources, including local media like the Chronicle and the Bay Area Reporter, political groups, community organizations, and neighborhood associations.
You'll find them all in Hoodline's 2016 SF Election Guide.
Just choose the sources you care about, and we'll show you which candidates and propositions they've endorsed. You'll also find links to more information about each candidate, including relevant stories we've written on Hoodline.
Make sure to check it out before you head to the polls on Nov. 8th, and if there are endorsers we've missed or other details you'd like us to include, let us know in the comments below.
And, if you're not registered to vote yet, you can do that right here; the registration deadline is
this Friday, Oct. 15th Oct. 24th.
