If you are running for public office in Sacramento, Yolo, Placer or El Dorado counties, The Bee invites you to share information about yourself and your credentials in our upcoming voter guides on and in the newspaper.

To be included, email us with your name and the office you are seeking. Send the e-mail to:

Once received, The Bee will reply with a web link through which you can supply basic biographical information and a 50-word comment on why you are running for office.

Time is of the essence. We have strict deadlines.

The voter guides will likely include candidates for these local offices:

•  Mayor and city council
•  School boards
•  Los Rios Community College District board
•  Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District board.

Because of space limitations, candidates for office in most other special districts – water, fire, community service and parks and recreation – will not be included in the guide. For the same reason, some city council and school board races may be excluded.

Questions about the voter guide should be directed to Pete Basofin at (916) 321-1170 or

We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
