Just for voters: Your own Indy cheat sheet

Posted By on Mon, Nov 1, 2010 at 6:03 PM


So you still haven't filled out that mail ballot yet? Planning to do it tonight and then drop it off Tuesday?

Or, like about 50,000 others in El Paso County, perhaps you're voting the old-fashioned way, at your friendly neighborhood polling place.

Regardless, we're guessing you might have forgotten to clip out one of our Independent cheat sheets with our endorsements and recommendations for nearly all the ballot races and issues.

So here's that cheat sheet again, just for you:
