Today is the day that we get to exercise our American right. It's Election Day.

With so many positions and items on the ballet for state, townships, and the like it can get a little confusing and daunting in choosing the right candidate.

If you need a little help in the voting process, check out the Illinois voters guideline. If you're like me you start to tune out all the political mud slinging from the ads. All I want to know is what each candidate stands for.

This guideline, from the Illinois Family Institute, lays it all out for us Illinois-ans.

Maybe you've already made up your mind who you're voting for, but if you're still not sure hopefully this guideline can help.

If you have voted, thank you.

If haven't voted yet you still have time to let your voice be heard.
