The main event is here, folks. The Nov. 6 midterm and local ballot is set for the Nov. 6 midterm election, and it’s got a whole lot on it, from state amendments and local referenda to races for the next governor and U.S. senator. We made this guide, with your awesome assistance, to help you feel prepared when you hit the polls.
Let’s get some stuff out of the way:
- We sent questions to the candidates for governor, U.S. senate and a few U.S. congressional seats based on the questions you all wanted answered (check those out here) and some of the main issues in this campaign season.
- What we didn’t do was focus in on the stuff that’s fodder for attack ads and campaign mailers. Our goal was to make it clear where the candidates stand and what their plans are to address our state and local issues, in their own words.
- We also aren’t covering every race on the ballot. Some of them aren’t that competitive, while others are pretty minor for our readers. We focused on where we could be the most impactful.
