The election season is in high gear, and candidates for all local offices and parties are busy making sure you know their names.
Your mailbox probably has a steady stream of flyers telling you to vote for Candidate A because Candidate B is mean to dogs, or asking for your support for Candidate B because Candidate A hates the color yellow.

Tell us in the comments how campaign literature affects—or doesn't—how you will vote next week.
