All Candidates Unopposed in Turlock Races; Registration Deadline Nears


If the Nov. 5 Consolidated District Election was held today, every single Turlock race would already be decided. In each of the six local races, just one candidate is running uncontested.

Only two days remain for last-minute candidates to get onto the ballot.

Three seats are available on the Turlock Unified School District Board of Trustees. Each seat has only one candidate.

The Turlock Irrigation District Board of Directors sees a similar fate in November: three seats, with three candidates to fill them.

In all but one of the six local races, an incumbent is running unopposed. The only incumbent who has yet to file for election is TUSD Trustee Josh Bernard; Joe Lewis, Turlock Youth Football President, is currently running unopposed for the TUSD Area 6 Trustee seat.

In some nearby races, the lack of candidates is even more dire. Though two seats are available on the Denair Community Services District, only one candidate has applied.

The deadline to file is rapidly approaching, with potential candidates having only until 5 p.m. Friday to register for most elections. In some races, where an incumbent does not file, that deadline will be extended to Aug. 14.

For more information on running for office, or to sign up, call (209) 525-5230 or visit the County Clerk-Recorder's office at 1021 I St., Modesto.

Oct. 21 is the last day to register to vote in the Nov. 5 election. To register online, visit

  • paul on In what different materials do women’s activewear comes? "You may get a variety of fabrics for the best activewear for women online, including cotton, spandex, synthetic, bamboo fiber, and Gore-Tex. Each of these materials has distinctive properties that set them apart. Since polyester is incredibly light and comfortable to wear, we advise you to utilize it. Athletic clothing frequently uses polyester as a fabric. Shirts for activewear, sweatpants and jogging jackets usually contain polyester blends. Polyester often dries quickly, making it the perfect fabric for intense workouts."
  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

Many online pharmaceutical stores provide the best kratom capsules at affordable prices. You can look for such online stores on Google or even social media.

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
  • paul on Why are customer reviews important during online shopping? "The most crucial component of every online store is its customer reviews. Reviews can assist other customers in determining whether or not the business and its items are worthwhile purchases. If you earn positive evaluations, your brand will gain an enormous reputation and rank better on Google. According to Google's recently modified algorithm, a business can increase its performance by obtaining reviews. This is the rationale behind inquiries about reviews on Google, Facebook, and other online clothing stores for women."
