Today is the day to vote in Alameda’s special election over Measure A, a new parcel tax that aims to support the Island school district.
Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 8.
There are very heated arguments about the measure, as has been the case recently with other parcel-tax proposals.
The League of Women Voters of Alameda had to cancel its February 3 forum on the measure, as controversies arose over the format and content of the public discussion.
The league has posted the pros and cons it gathered Measure A online, though.
Each and every vote counts, since the Measure A parcel tax needs to pass with 66.6% or more of the votes.
Last summer’s Measure E votes were: 14, 415, or 65.62%, yes; 7,551, or 34.38%, no.
Today’s parcel tax vote should be another close one.
