MENDOCINO Co., 11/25/20 — The 2020 general election happened more than three weeks ago, and already the campaign seems like a fading fever dream. Yesterday the elections department certified the results (read the full results here), and on this occasion we think it would be nice to take a little stroll back a month, to when the world seemed more uncertain and the country held its breath, to see how the election was carried out here in our little corner of the the republic.
People you’ll find several photos from photojournalist Alexandra Hootnick documenting the day of the election, from the polling place at the Lions Club in Laytonville, down to the fairgrounds in Ukiah where many votes were cast, and the county buildings on Low Gap Rd. where the count was made.
We hope you enjoy this glimpse of ordinary life on an extraordinary day.
