The presidential race, of course, is getting the most attention, even at the local level, but there are a number of key, federal, state and county races up for voter consideration.

Among them are a U.S. Senate race; congressional races, including the one up for grabs as a result of Connie Mack's senate bid; a state senate race and house races; a school board seat; four county commission seats; two constitutional offices, including tax collector and sheriff; and seats on the Lee County Hospital Board.

Also on the ballot are numerous amendments as well as a local referendum that would allow slot machines at Naples-Fort Myers Greyhound Racing & Poker .

There's lots to decide.

We urge those who intend to cast a ballot but who are not yet registered to do so.

And we continue to encourage all voters to access the abundance of election-related information out there.

In addition to the remaining presidential debates, there are forums remaining on the local level.

Watch the local media, such as The Breeze, for notices about candidate forums and debates.

Visit candidate web sites and take a minute to read campaign literature.

For state and federal races, go to www.election.dos.state.fl.us or www.leeelections.com for local races.

And, of course, check out news stories, both online and in print.
