Elections will be held today for three seats on the Ventura City Council. Seven candidates are vying to replace an incumbent and two retiring council members on the seven-member board.
The ballot also includes representatives of boards in the Ventura Unified and Las Virgenes school districts and the Ventura River County Water District.
Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.
Election officials are predicting a turnout of about 25%, based on a low-key council race and voter fatigue after last month's gubernatorial recall election. About 66% of registered voters cast ballots in the recall.
