In my opinion voting in September for an election in November is lamebrained, dim-witted, and unintelligent. There will be “October surprises”, the presidential debates don’t even start until next week.
The ONLY reason to vote now is to pretend you investigated all the candidates and have determined which ones represent your values. You are also pretending you have the moral authority to declare one party and every candidate running in that party superior to every other candidate since voting this early likely means voting straight party.
Since voters rejected abolishing the Bloomington Election Commission which would have saved money, sample ballots for Bloomington and the rest of the County are available in different places.

Every election I get questions about candidates, here’s my take:
The Democrat party is now the party of destroying everything America has stood for since its founding. They want you to believe America was never great. They want to take away your freedom so they have power. Voting for Biden is really a vote for whoever is writing his scripts. He obviously won’t serve 4 years. Living in Illinois means you already know stealing your money for their agenda is how Democrats roll. Want higher taxes? Vote Democrat. I guarantee this election will not be fair, free, or conclusive. Yes, it will get even more divisive.
Dick Durbin is turning SEVENTY SIX this year! Democrats never go away until they die. If you read his Tweets you would know he does nothing but throw flames at anyone who doesn’t agree with him. He needs to go! If he is re-elected he will be 82 when his term expires.
Unless I REALLY like a candidate who is running unopposed I leave it blank. There is one on the ballot, figure it out yourself. There is also one I’m definitely leaving blank.
That brings me to this race:
The Republican candidate is a disaster!
The Democrat candidate is also a disaster! (Search BlnNews.com, lots of Fazzini stories)
The Auditor position is supposed to be your watchdog of County funds. What better candidate than the one running not associated with either party?
I’m voting for Kevin Woodard.
Kathy Yoder is doing a great job as Coroner, she deserves re-election.
I vote No on retaining ANY judge. There is no better path to corruption than not exercising your right to term limits. Judges, just like politicians, need changed frequently.
Danvers: What is behind this one?
Want your taxes to go up to pay government’s share?
This one is a no-brainer:
I agree Barack.
