East County News Service

November 3, 2014 (San Diego’s East County)— East County Magazine has compiled this handy guide for you with links to all of our coverage of local races, as well as some statewide and federal (Congressional) races on your ballot for the election on Tuesday, November 4. 

We invited all candidates running in local races listed below to be interviewed, and include print and/or  radio interviews with those who responded.   We also have links to our coverage of debates, candidate forums, analysis, editorials submitted by our readers (ECM does not editorialize), and other relevant information on candidates and ballot propositions. Also see below for links to additional nonpartisan resources for info on these and other races.

Our nonpartisan guide is arranged in three sections: local, state, and federal (Congressional) races, with  the races alphabetical under each section. To view, click "read more" below and scroll down.

Note: We could not cover every race with the resources available.  For nonpartisan information on all California races, you can visit the nonpartisan League of Women Voters’ Smart Voter site at http://votersedge.org/california/welcome-to-our-new-home#.VFg6rcngW5K ,  for local races see the League of Women Voters San Diego at  http://www.lwvsandiego.org/.  Vote Smart at  http://votesmart.org/  and Ballotpedia at http://ballotpedia.org/Main_Page  also have information on candidates including Congressional/federal races.
