Sample Ballot for March 20 Primary—GOP, Geneva's East Side

Here's the sample Republican ballot for Geneva's East Side.

It's getting close to the March 20 primary. You're wondering who the heck you're going to vote for.

Well, if you live on the East Side of Geneva and you're voting in the Republican primary, your sample ballot will look something like what you see below.

You can view for yourself by visiting the Kane County Clerk's website, clicking on "More" under the "Elections" header on the left, then "Sample Ballot." You'll need to type in your last name, street number and street name. (Only the first word of the street name is necessary. For example: "Downing" rather than "Downing Place.")

Here's a link to the PDF for the Republican primary ballot for Geneva's East Side. But for your convenience, I've re-typed it below. Let me know if you see any errors or ommisions.

Editor's notes:

I included the noncontested races, just so that you wouldn't be surprised when you go to vote.

There are basically three sample ballots in Geneva, due to the various redistricting at the state and county level. For example, most Genevans are in the Kane County Board 11th District, but some are in District 12, 13 and 18. In statewide races, some Genevans will vote for the 25th District state senator and others for the 33rd District state senator, and Geneva is divvied up among three General Assembly districts: the 49th, 50th and 65th.

And, of course, you can choose a primary ballot for the Republican Party, the Democratic Party or a nonpartisan ballot.

Operating on the belief that one should never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity, I will assume, Rick, that there is an unexplained reason why you chose not only to include only the GOP ballot for the East side of Geneva, but also to include the link to a PDF of only that particular ballot. I can easily see why you wouldn't want to type in each of the several forms that will be used in Geneva, but surely linking to all of the PDFs wouldn't have taxed (or is that a forbidden word) your linking skills. Yes, you did provide a link to the Kane County Clerk's website and tell us how to find a sample of a ballot specific to our addresses, but, REALLY...? As an Election Judge (Dem), I have always felt responsible to assist all voters equally. Please tell me that my assumption is correct: you just made a stupid mistake.

Lou, there are six stories in the sample ballot series. Here's the overview story that has the schedule. http://geneva.patch.com/articles/how-to-find-who-s-on-the-march-20-ballot-in-geneva

Thanks, Rick. You're quite clear in your response to my comment. I scoured the article I commented on, looking for just such an indication that you were going to post other sample ballots later. Since I never noticed the article you reference above, I wrote my comment in frustration. A small comment just before the sample ballot would have solved my problem. I was also unable to find that kind of help in today's article. I wish I had seen your first article, but I didn't. Please keep that possibility in mind when you write a series of articles.
