With just about a month to go until Claremont's city council election, voters can expect a preview of what's to come in their mailboxes soon.
Sample ballots were mailed out this week, the city announced Tuesday.
In the election, voters can choose their picks for two of the five council seats. Three candidates are running for the roles, which run in four year terms.
Those running for the council include: incumbent Councilman Corey Calaycay and Mayor Larry Schroeder, along with Michael Keenan, a local professional window cleaner, according to the city.
In the sample ballot-- an example of which is attached to this article-- you can learn about the candidates and their visions for the city by reading their statements. You can also sign up to vote by mail in the election if you aren't a permanent absentee voter.
If you're not yet registered to vote, you can find registration forms at City Hall, the Claremont Public Library, and the Claremont Post Office.
