But unlike flipping through the phonebrick that is the Secretary of State voter's guide—which wasn't printed for the primaries—this site allows you to plug in your home address and receive a personalized ballot listing every candidate of every race you'll be voting on, along with candidate photos, bios, completed questionnaires, and even salary information.
"We invited all the state's 887 candidates to complete questionnaires designed for their specific races," explains League co-president Linnea Hirst, who says that on this trial run, only about 1/3 of the candidates complied. "It allows you to compare candidates and their priorities side-by-side. It's pretty slick."

The bad news is that the website is nonpartisan, which means you'll get no help sorting out the good candidates from the stupid. The good news is that most candidates sort of out themselves. (Take the batshit charm of perennial candidate Goodspaceguy's goodspaceviews.)
And once you're finished virtually filling out your ballot, you can print or email yourself a copy as a handy cheat sheet.
Basically, if you live in a county that didn't produce its own voter's guide for the primary, this site could be a godgaiasend.
