Voter's guide

Here's a handy (and dandy!) guide to CL's election endorsements, lifted from last week's issue.

Most of you will find some races on your ballots that we don't mention below. For time and space reasons, we only endorsed in high-profile state and local contests, and in legislative races that actually seemed competitive.

Clip this guide out, stick it in your pocket, then whip it out at the voting booth. Or just ignore it ... but at least go vote.
