I'm still reading up on the candidates and propositions. It's not easy finding information that I can easily understand. Here are some links for local and state items that I've found useful. Maybe they'll come in handy for you, too. Remember, voting day is Tuesday, November 6.

Local Candidates and Issues
You can view videotapes of mayoral candidates and a few other local candidates at Community Media Access Partnership (CMAP). Here's the link.
On 10/16 and 10/17 the Farm Bureau hosted a candidate forum. On Channel 17, you can watch the videotape of the two nights. You can find the schedule for its showing at this CMAP link.
San Benito County Today is the Web site for the Hollister Free Lance. By registering (it's free), you can read articles about candidates and Measure E, as well as opinion pieces by the candidates and their supporters (or not supporters).
