Election Day

I’ll be arriving in the office mid-afternoon, where I plan to blog throughout the day and into the night as returns come in.

Our biggest race, aside from the many local contests, is the congressional District 11 contest between Rep. Richard Pombo, R-Tracy, and Democratic challenger Jerry McNerney. We’ll have two reporters at the candidates’ campaign event plus photographers will document the event and post pictures later tonight.

In addition to the www.contracostatime.com home page, you can click here to go directly to the Times’ politics page.

Unfortunately, I’ll be in the office compiling the information from my colleagues in the field and won’t be able to visit the many victory parties! Besides, I couldn’t figure out to be in two places at once, i.e., the Pombo and McNerney events, so I have opted for a neutral location.

So, don’t forget to vote and then tune in later for all the fun.
