This news organization’s Voter Guide is a valuable way to learn about the candidates on your ballot in the Nov. 7 election.

This election is about our hometowns. We’ll elect city council members who decide on police staffing and road paving, mayors and township trustees who set the overall tone for our communities, and school board members who hire our children’s teachers.

We sent Voter Guide questionnaires to all local candidates who are in competitive races (races with more candidates than open seats).

Visit our Voter Guide to learn, in the candidates’ own words, why they think they’re best for the job, what specific plans they have if elected, and details of their jobs, education and history of serving their community.
