NON-PARTISAN CANDIDATE INFORMATION
Understanding who and what to vote for can be a confusing process, but it's important to know what is on your ballot before you head to the polls. Knowing what's on your ballot can help you make an informed decision and save you time at the polls so you're not scrambling to look up candidates and issues while you're in line to vote.
Below are a few non-partisan tools to help you find information about candidates and ballot measures in one easy-to-use platform.
*Key Tip: Jot down who you would like to vote for on a piece of paper before heading to the polls to cast your vote. Cell phones are not allowed to be out when you vote in-person, so it's always a good idea to have a written cheat-sheet with you to remember your choices.
