What you need to know about Nov. 5 election

The Fresno BeeOctober 18, 2013 

Some voters in Fresno, Kings and Tulare counties have the opportunity to participate Nov. 5 in off-year general elections. The November races withe highest profile are in Visalia, where city council and school board seats are up for a vote.

It's also an election year for many special districts in the central San Joaquin Valley, but there only are a handful of contested races; most have uncontested candidates and, in some cases, no candidates.

Madera County doesn't have a general election in this cycle.
