Primary 2010

For the Ohio primary election, you may vote a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Constitution, Green, or Socialist ballot. You must choose which party's elections you want to vote in - you can not vote in more than one. We have grouped the tables in the voter guide by party to assist you.

NOTE: The endorsement committee focused on contested primary races, given that voters are given a choice in those races. When we have a candidate survey, but no other information to go on, the highest grade a non-incumbent can earn is a B. Strong pro-gun candidates who have been so graded are indicated with an asterisk (*).
