Every vote counts

Less hyped but equally important (maybe more so for how local the issues and people involved are), tomorrow is the Spring 2008 Election, where the good citizens of Wisconsin get to vote for the following positions:
  • Justice of the Supreme Court
  • Court of Appeals Judge
  • Circuit Court Judge
  • County Board Supervisor
  • MMSD School Board Seats 6 & 7 (obviously Madison only)
  • The Veto Referendum
An election like this tends to have a much lower voter turn-out, which is a shame, because we're deciding issues that have a much more direct effect on our lives. The people we elect to these positions will be making decisions that impact us all. So I hope all of you will take the time to do at least cursory research into the candidates and then go to the polls tomorrow to cast your vote.

In order to help you with those decisions, I've compiled a few decent resources related to the election:
I'm still working to find resources for the other races, but this is what I've got so far. Please feel free to recommend other sources in the comments section.

And most importantly, happy voting! Be sure to keep your April Fools pranks out of the booth.
