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.
