The Official Sherman Ave Midterm Election Ballot Guide
It’s election time! No, you can’t vote for Hillary yet, but midterm elections are still… fun? For all of you first-time Evanston voters, here is a guide to some of the white people who are looking to run your state. A couple disclaimers…
- This guide only covers Senatorial, Congressional, and Gubernatorial elections. If you want to make sure you elect the most well-intentioned candidates as Commissioners of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District, that’s your job, not mine.
- If this list in any way influences your ballot, you’re doing democracy wrong.
