After months of politicking, door knocking, lawn signs, glad handing and debating, Election Day is finally here.

North Coast voters have some big choices before them today, including who will be the county's next district attorney and who will represent the 4th and 5th districts on the county board of supervisors. There's also a field of state representatives and candidates for U.S. Congress to whittle down for runoff elections in November.

If you're unsure of your polling place or want a little more time to peruse your options, visit the Humboldt County Elections Office website and click on the "sample ballot and polling place lookup link."
