November Election

District 6 candidates forum at downtown library

Candidates for District 6 — a district that includes the South of Market and Tenderloin areas and Treasure Island — will speak tonight at a forum held at the San Francisco Public Library from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Audience members will have a chance to submit questions to the moderator. The event is sponsored by the League of Women Voters.

Absentee ballots and voter information pamphlets mailed

San Francisco’s Department of Elections is scheduled to begin mailing out absentee ballots to San Francisco’s 125,000 permanent absentee voters today. In addition, the department said it intends to have all of the voter information pamphlets in the mail by today, 28 days before the election. Supervisor Sean Elsbernd, who received complaints that some guides went out only days before the June 2006 primary election, said he was pleased the fall election pamphlets were going out approximately a month before the November election. Nonetheless, he said he would continue to push for an ordinance that would mandate a deadline for mailing out the voter guides. The voter guide is also available online at www.sfelections.org.

Board to hold hearing on school textbooks at meeting

The San Francisco Unified School District is asking for public input at its school board meeting tonight on whether schools have enough textbooks for each student. The hearing is a state requirement as a result of a $1 billion lawsuit settlement meant to improve the state’s substandard schools. The Williams settlement, named after a San Francisco middle school student who was part of a class action lawsuit against the state, also requires schools to follow up on complaints, maintain school facilities and ensure teachers are sufficiently qualified.
