You're probably already fed up with all the political junk mail you've been getting due to the February 5th primary, but the more info the better I say. In that spirit, here are some links that may be helpful for making an informed decision. All three major papers have endorsements online: the Trib, the Sun-Times and the Herald. There are a slew of good blogs, but if you haven't yet check out Clout City at the Reader and Capitol Fax, both of which are easily searchable. And for the nitty-gritty, as in voting records and bios, Vote Smart is a little slow but extremely useful. If you don't know what district you're in, the Trib has a handy gadget that will list your races based on address. Good luck navigating in these waters!
