Tuesday is Election Day.

Today, we reprint a list of the Northwest Herald Editorial Board’s recommendations in some contested races that McHenry County voters will see on the ballot.

To help make your own informed decisions, visit Northwest Herald’s Election Central page online, where you can read candidate responses to our questionnaires.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday. For a list of polling locations, visit the McHenry County Clerk’s website. Please remember to vote.

To track results as they come in, visit Election Central starting shortly after 7 p.m. Tuesday. Northwest Herald staffers will provide around-the-clock, election night updates on results, breaking stories and a Twitter feed.
