FROMOLIVIA: A crucial piece of our mission at Community Impact Newspaper is arming readers with the information they need to make informed decisions, and nowhere is that more important than in the voter’s booth. This year’s election will look quite dierent than those of years past—partly due to the coronavirus pandemic, but also because of changes to state law. Our cover story gives readers a heads- up on what to expect before heading to the polls. We also include a listing of candidates, data on past turnout percentages and information on when and where to vote in our Voter Guide (see Page 15).
