GETTING TO THE POLLS EARLY

California voters took to the polls Tuesday to decide the fate of Propositions 1A through 1F, a slate of budget-fixing measures that the state Legislature pushed as a necessary evil to help fix a yawning $42-billion gap through 2010.

Elections officials reported light voter turnout at many polls for a slate a propositions that, for the most part, did poorly in surveys leading up to Tuesday. Now, with the results in, local governments will be left to discern the impacts to their own budgets.

State lawmakers had warned that, without the propositions, the impact to local agencies would only worsen, even as they prepare to cut millions, lay off staff or reduce services.

Full coverage of what that means for local school districts and city agencies is scheduled for Thursday's edition.
