Endorsements.

Here's the same post from the last such election, though I've added a column or two.

Here is the ballot I'll see on Tuesday in PDF format. (I note that Mark Shelden now says my polling place is Jericho Missionary Baptist Church, though it's the same address as what's on my voter registration card.)

A blank cell denotes either that the paper did not consider an endorsement for the office or that I couldn't find their endorsement; No Endorsement denotes that the paper considered the candidates and expressly endorsed none. Red denotes Republican Party candidates; Blue denotes Democratic Party candidates; Green denotes Green Party candidates. Black denotes a non-partisan question. Note that in Illinois, the Governor and Lieutenant Governor are elected as a single two-person slate; hence they are grouped together in a single column.
