NUECES COUNTY (Kiii News) — With any election day comes information to digest, and plenty of it. This year's midterms include several high profile races from the federal level down to municipal, and thanks to the League of Women Voters, staying informed just got easier.
WHERE TO VOTE: Election Day polling locations in Nueces County
The League of Women Voters have compiled a handy, non-partisan voters guide to help those looking to cast an informed ballot. Questions determined by the LWV board were presented to candidates, who then submitted their answers via Vote411.org, a "one-stop-shop" for election-related information that was formed by the LWV Education Fund.
In this guide, candidate responses are reprinted verbatim and are not edited. Here are the races:
