Tomorrow's primary day!

love to vote!Anybody still feeling up in the air on mayor should track down a Sunday Inquirer, which did a great job of recapping the issues discussions and candidate questions of the last few weeks, as well as adding in a collage of citizen musing that help round out the story. (Unfortunately, finding those stories online a day later appears to be much harder than I thought.) That, or skim The Next Mayor, which has links to position papers and news coverage about each candidate, and generally more information than you'd know what to do with.

Note that the order of the ballot tomorrow may be a bit of a surprise -- all the judicial candidates appear first, followed only then by the Mayoral contenders and the At-Large and District Council races, and finally the smaller "row offices" like City Commissioner, Clerk of the Courts, and Sheriff.

Also, be prepared for a raft of ballot questions -- the Committee of Seventy provides a simple English version of each (PDF) if you want to look them over in advance. Also note that, while voting for candidates is limited to their respective party members, any registered voter (including independent voters) can have a say on the ballot measures.

General voting info:
polls are open 7am-8pm. If you don't know where to vote, you can type your address into this interactive map or call 1-866-268-8603. If you are uncertain about where you are currently registered, ask for a provisional ballot, which allows you to record your votes and have them counted in the correct Division.
