Not exactly household names around here. 

So when we say that all informed and able voters should take advantage of their right to vote today, it may seem like a useless exhortation. But we believe it isn’t.

At the very most, local voters will have a handful of candidates to evaluate at the polls today. And with polls open from noon to 9 p.m., it’s not unreasonable to think that any prospective voter could find the time to go online and learn a little bit about each candidate.

It’s your civic duty, and it’s an exercise in democracy.

And besides, it’s not like there will be a line.
