Still undecided? We are urging Shepherd readers to vote in this election, even if you feel like your vote will not matter or that the candidates are more or less the same. Face it: Every vote counts, especially in close elections, and there are very big policy differences between the candidates on the issues.
We’ve endorsed Democratic candidate for president Hillary Clinton, as well as Democrat Russ Feingold for U.S. Senate. For Congress, Ryan Solen, Gwen Moore and Khary Penebaker got our support. For state Assembly, Jack Redmond in the southern suburbs received our strong endorsement, as well as Dan Riemer, Chris Rockwood, Andy Mitchell and Cory Mason.
Now, get out and vote!
