Students of all grades, but mostly seniors, voted on four ballot measures, the California gubernatorial race and the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Barbara Boxer.
Special guest speaker Linda McMillan will lead a conference starting at 9 a.m. Thursday that will explore ways of trying to turn public land users into public lands stewards.
