While the Republican and Democratic Parties both have their presidential nominees situated for the November election, there is still plenty on the ballot this Tuesday, as part of the primary election.
Voters in Stanislaus County will be voting on Measure T, a continuance of the 1/8 percent sales tax to fund local libraries, as well as voting to determine the District 5 Supervisor, which is presently a race between current Supervisor Jim DeMartini and Ceres resident Daniel Padilla.
The 10th Congressional District race will also be on the Tuesday ballot, featuring candidates Rep. Jeff Denham (R), Jose Hernandez (D), Michael Barkely (D), Troy McComak (I), and Chad Condit (I).

State Assembly, District 12 candidates include Kristin Olsen (R), and Lathrop councilmember and Vice Mayor Christopher Mateo (D).
Voters will also be faced with two State Propositions, including Proposition 28, which limits on legislators’ term in office, and Proposition 29, which would impose additional taxes on cigarettes for Cancer Research.
Polls will be open from 7am until 8pm on Tuesday. The Vote by Mail Ballot must be received in the Stanislaus County Registrar of Voters office no later than 8pm on Election Day. Postmarks do not count.
