Election Day’s almost here: Who’s your choice?

Depending on where you live, you can legally vote in only one Oakland school board race tomorrow, if that. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have an opinion of who should come out on top.

In District 1 (North Oakland), you have Jody London, Brian Rogers and Tennessee Reed (left to right) vying for an open seat. Read the Trib’s coverage of the race here.


In District 3 (West Oakland), Jumoke Hinton Hodge hopes to succeed her husband, Greg Hodge, on the board; Olugbemiga Oluwole Sr. has his eye on the seat as well. Tribune story here.


Alice Spearman (below, left) is the only incumbent facing a challenge in this election. Doris Limbrick (middle) and Beverly Williams (right) say District 7 (East Oakland-Elmhurst) needs a change. Tribune story here.


If you missed the Trib’s coverage of any city or state races and need to do last-minute research before heading out to the polls, check out the election page, which lists all of the stories related to the Tuesday election. It also includes the list of the Tribune’s endorsements (Note: I have no say in that process).

Which candidates would be best for the Oakland school district?
