2 sites where you enter your address to get ballot info. The first has no endorsements, and the second endorses.
The Capitol Hill Blog took some position. Their comments along with the comment section may be helpful to read.
I recently learned from a politico friend of mine that, although the political parties and other groups do not know HOW you voted, they can find out if your ballot has arrived at the elections office. Once your ballot has been logged, the political groups stop calling and sending mailers for that election. The surest way to stop the robo-calls (for now)!
