The Chron’s final endorsement list

Here it is, in all its pathetically incomplete glory. Compare to what they had done by the start of Early Voting and you can see that they never developed anything resembling a sense of urgency about this. It’s a pity and a puzzle, but there you have it. I’d love to know if they started off with a list of which races they wanted to comment on that they then (mostly) followed, or if this is just how things worked out. In particular, I’m trying to figure out how it is that they could completely ignore competitive primaries in an open, swing legislative district like HD144. Maybe they’ll weigh in on the Democratic side if there’s a runoff, but the GOP race is a two-man affair, so there’s no second chance. Was it by accident or by design that they overlooked this one? That’s what I want to know.

If you have not voted yet but plan to do so today, you can find a list of polling places here. Note that your usual precinct location may or may not be in operation, and even if it is it may not be for both parties. Check before you head out, that’s all I’m saying.

Tonight I will be participating in a live chat on the Chron’s website – go to the Chron election blog and look for the Cover It Live chat. I don’t know who else is participating – I presume some Chron staffers and a couple of us bloggers – but come on in between 7 and 11 and ask a question or comment on whatever results interest you. I really have no idea what to expect, but I do know it’ll be more fun if it’s not just the panelists talking to each other. See you there tonight.
