Cheat Sheet: Who’s Endorsing Whom

The ballot is a bit overwhelming, so here’s a rundown of endorsements from local news sources. (You’re on your own for the presidential race and the statewide proposals.) Each outlet’s full of list of recommendations can be found at Independent, Montecito Journal (the October 2-8 issue will be online eventually), and News-Press (which only weighs in on a handful of local races). If others are published, I’ll update this page accordingly.
