Eastvale – It’s time to go to the polls, Eastvale, and voice your opinion for the municipality you call home. The 2014 Consolidated General Election is on Tues., Nov. 4, with the polls open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
There have been a few opportunities for you to learn firsthand about the candidates for the three seats open on Eastvale’s City Council. The Chamber of Commerce offered a Candidate Forum on October 23, and the Eastvale Community News asked the candidates specific questions which they answered in the October edition (results for both options can be viewed at www.anapr.com).
Of course there are a multitude of issues on the ballot and most voters have their own way of seeking out due diligence. Everything from the controversial Measure GG to the State Assembly is up for opinion, and your votes are needed to chart the courses.
The trend of early voting has become more prevalent in recent years for those unable to make it to the polls (or want their votes counted early), and this option is available leading up to Election Day. Registered voters may drop off a vote-by-mail ballot or vote on an accessible voting unit at the Registrar of Voters office, located at 2724 Gateway Drive in Riverside. They are open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sat., Nov. 1 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Election Day from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
If you are voting by mail, keep in mind that the City of Eastvale’s office is a drop-off location. They are located at 12363 Limonite Avenue, Suite 910 (in the Gateway Shopping center at Limonite and Hamner). They can be reached at (951) 361-0900, and their hours of operation are Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (closed Fridays).
