Good morning! It’s Dani Bergstrom, policy editor here.

At long last, we are excited to share our voter guide with you all!

We’ve spent the last several weeks combing through candidates’ websites, news archives, and recent debates to learn more about candidates’ biographical information, general policy positions, and key endorsements. 

We also gathered the candidates’ scorecards from California Environmental Voters and the Chamber of Commerce, when available, to show how the incumbent candidates are viewed by leading lobbyist groups representing business and the environment.

We’ve reported on and researched several ballot measures, including the big two transportation sales taxes – Measure C for Fresno County, and Measure T for Madera County.

And of course, we are showing you the money, one of our favorite pastimes. After a while, the policy positions all start to sound the same, and we want to make sure you know who or which groups have an interest in getting people (or ballot measures) supported.

Check out our guide below, and share with your friends! (And for state races and propositions, check out our friends at CalMatters’ excellent voter guide here.)

(If you end up using our guide to help you fill out your ballot, please tag us on Instagram or on Twitter @fresnoland – we’d love to share it.)
