There's a solution available for voters who see the hundreds of campaign signs planted in yards around the suburbs but might not know who they can vote for in the local election on Tuesday.
County offices have resources online where people can find what precincts they live in and where they can vote. And sample ballots are available showing in which races a voter can make picks.
All you need is your address to get started.
Once you know what races you can vote in, visit dailyherald.com/news/politics/election/ for information about who's running, including candidate questionnaires, news articles and our editorial board's endorsements.
On Tuesday, voters will choose mayors, school board members and other local government leaders across the suburbs.
