The Fresno BeeJune 1, 2014 

Wendy Nettles of Fresno votes at the Fresno County Clerk's office in downtown Fresno on Saturday, May 31, 2014. This is the final weekend of the primary election season, and candidates across the political spectrum are making last pitches to voters, and pushing their most ardent supporters to actually cast ballots. In a low-turnout election, every vote is crucial.


Join us during the day Tuesday as we report on voter's moods in the June primary. Then, at 5 p.m. Tuesday, we will fire up a live blog that will serve as our nerve center for election discussion and results.

Bee reporters will be on the blog throughout the day. Ask us anything, anytime, but be sure to check in at the following times for talk about specific races:

Fresno County: 5-5:30 p.m., Marc Benjamin on the supervisor races, Pablo Lopez on the assessor-recorder race and Hannah Furfaro on the judicial race

Fresno County DA, state controller: 5:30-6 p.m., John Ellis on the battle between incumbent Fresno County District Attorney Elizabeth Egan and challenger Lisa Sondergaard Smittcamp, plus the controller race featuring Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin

Back for more: 7-7:30 p.m., John Ellis returns for more about the Fresno County DA and controller races
