Over the past several weeks The Capital Times has run op/eds by statewide candidates and candidates in our area who have primary races that will be decided on Aug. 14. Each candidate was given the opportunity to tell voters why he/she should be their choice.

We've also editorialized about the races. The Cap Times rarely endorses in primaries unless the race is definitive (e.g., Assembly District 77, since the Aug. 14 winner will not face a challenger in November) or when there is someone we consider a standout candidate. In this election, we have endorsed in AD77 and the lieutenant governor's race.

Candidate columns, our endorsements and other Cap Times commentary about the election are collected below.

So make your voice count — read up by clicking on the piece, deciding and voting. You may vote on any party's roster, but may not vote in more than one party's primary.
