Yesterday was the spring equinox, right? That’s pretty cool. It’s spring now.

And with spring, in this even-numbered year, comes … election season! Holy moly do we ever have a loaded ballot for June 2022, with contested races for…

  • Fourth District Supervisor
  • Fifth District Supervisor
  • District Attorney
  • Auditor-Controller
  • Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters
  • Superior Court Judge, and
  • Arcata City Council

That’s a lot of figuring-out-of-things we’re all going to have to do before we mark up our ballots, and there are a lot of fresh faces this time around. How do we figure out who they are and what they stand for?

To help with that, the Outpost is reviving a beloved election-season feature: LoCO Elections! It’s the special pop-up Outpost subsite where you can put your questions to the people running for office, and they can put their answers to you.

Need a refresher on how it all works? Click here for that. Then pop on over to LoCO Elections and put your questions directly to the people who would like to serve you! Or upvote questions other people have asked, so’s to bring it to the candidate’s attention!

So far, the following candidates for office have signed up for a LoCO Elections account: Natalie Arroyo, Kim Bergel, Larry Doss, Cheryl Dillingham, Adrian Kamada, Juan Pablo Cervantes and Steven Steward. But if your question is for some other candidate, go ahead and ask it anyway. They might show up at some point.
