Look For Election Results Online
Tuesday, Nov. 7 was Election Day but polls didn’t close until 8 p.m. – which was after press time for this week’s issue of The Times.
In light of that, look for election results as they become available from the San Joaquin County Registrar of Voters office; they will be posted online at the Escalon Times website and will also be posted on our Facebook page.
For local voters in Escalon, there were two races of interest.
In the Oakdale Irrigation District Division 2 race, incumbent Herman Doornenbal, Jr. of Escalon sought to retain his seat over the challenge of local farmer/rancher Don Taro. The division includes a portion of rural Escalon.
In the Valley Home School District, a two-year unexpired term shared between San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties, candidates Erin Wells and Mary Beth Carpenter were vying for the seat.
The Times will also have election follow-up information in the Nov. 15 issue.
