Get ready to vote

The primary election for Ann Arbor's City Council race is tomorrow. The Democratic party is the only party with multiple candidates running for seats. As such it is the only party in the primary tomorrow. In some cases, winners of tomorrow's election will face challengers in November, others will be unchallenged in the general election. In case you have waited until the last minute to make your decision, here are some articles that may help you decide:
The Chronicle's Mapping Money article is a pretty awesome geographic breakdown of where candidates money comes from
The Com has an article examining who some of the big donors backing the candidates are
The Chronicle has another good article about past voting patterns in primary elections
Here are our links to the League of Women Voter's Candidate Forum videos
Update: Local in Ann Arbor reminds us the Chronicle posted a useful election summary today
