2006_03_voters.jpgDo you want to vote in tomorrow's primary election, but are worried about making the wrong choices because you can't tell your Oberweis from your edelweiss?

Have no fear, we have the resources you need to make an informed decision.

The Sun-Times offers a chart of where the gubernatorial candidates stand on the issues.

The Tribune has an election guide for the whole Chicagoland area.

The Illinois State Bar Association gives you ratings on judges up for election.

If you want to read some diverse views on campaigns and politicians, then we suggest checking out the wide range of bloggers over at Illinoize. We also recommend reading the Beachwood Reporter's Guide to the Primaries.

Are you unsure of where to vote, or who to turn to if you have problems? The Chicago Board of Election Commissioners lets you find your polling place based on your address, and the Illinois State Board of Elections has set up a hotline to answer your questions and complaints.

The polls will be open tomorrow from 6 AM to 7 PM. We recommend going early in the morning.

Happy voting, everybody.
