Breaking Down the Ballot
The News desk provides a cheat sheet for overwhelmed November voters
Travis County Clerk Dana DeBeauvoir is recommending voters bring notes along Nov. 6, as we will be wading through a longer-than-usual ballot on our e-slate readers. The county's sample ballot, available on the county's election website (www.traviscountyclerk.org/eclerk/Content.do?code=E.3) is especially daunting – but remember, you'll only see the races included in your particular precinct. That will be lengthy enough – so the News staff is hereby doing its best to provide you with a handy "voters' guide" to the races – from national to extremely local – that are most likely to turn up on your e-slate on Election Day. (This cheat sheet focuses on useful voter information; for specific Chronicle endorsements in contested races and on ballot propositions, please see our endorsements.)
