Today is primary election day in Johnson County. GO VOTE!

Advance voting in person and by mail is underway in Johnson County.

To help area voters choose the candidates whose views and priorities most closely align with their own, we developed questionnaires for candidates up and down the primary ballots based on input from readers on the issues they wanted to hear the people seeking to represent them address.

The races on the primary ballot and the candidates for each are listed below. We’ve also linked to the pages where we published all the candidates’ answers to our questionnaire items.
