June 5 Primary Ballot information will start arriving in mailboxes from April 26 onward. Do you know about the ballot measures--two state measures and a Peralta district parcel tax? You will be asked to vote by two different methods on the primary ballot candidates.
To avoid confusion, join us on Tuesday, May 1, from noon to 2 at the Edith Stone Room at Albany Public Library, 1247 Marin at Masonic.
Anne Henderson, State & Local Finance Director for League of Women Voters of California, will describe the measures and lead the discussion.
Bring a bag lunch and invite a friend to ask questions and discuss the issues.
