Four votes. That was the margin of loss in the Grover Beach charter city measure on the 2012 ballot. We recall that tally to make a point: Every vote matters.
If you’ve already submitted your ballot, good for you. If not, make sure you vote today.
Yes, this is a primary election, which is often viewed as a warm-up for the main show in November. But consider, in races with only two candidates on the ballot — Second District supervisor and Morro Bay mayor — the contest will definitely be decided in this election.
A new district attorney could also be selected — the third candidate in that race is a write-in — and in the hotly contested election for Fourth District supervisor, the field will be narrowed from three to two candidates, if not decided outright.
Never miss a local story.
Do not miss this opportunity to fill these critical leadership positions in our communities.
No matter who you support, vote.
