Dave Macdonald, Alameda County's registrar of voters, said he hopes voter turnout will approach 40 percent on Tuesday.

Macdonald said this election is unique in that the county never has had a June primary following a February primary. There's no history with which to gauge a voter turnout estimate, he explained.

Voters in Castro Valley, Hayward, San Leandro, San Lorenzo and other unincorporated communities will weigh in on local, county, state and federal candidates, and measures in Tuesday's primary election.

Countywide, voters will decide whether to continue and expand Measure F, a utility users' tax applied only in unincorporated areas, and choose from among four attorneys competing for a vacancy on the county's Superior Court bench.

Voters in county supervisorial District 4 will choose either incumbent Nate Miley or challenger Steve White.

Parties also will nominate candidates in the 13th Congressional, 18th and 20th Assembly, and Ninth state Senate districts.

Hayward voters will choose four, four-year City Council members and one person to fill a two-year council vacancy. And Hayward Unified School District voters will decide whether to authorize Measure I, a $205 million bond for new and reconstructed school facilities and furnishings.

San Leandro voters will go to the polls to select council members in districts 2, 4 and 6.

Polls will be open Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
