We invited candidates for office from across the Treasure Valley to answer a few questions and tell you why they deserve your vote.

We've also got information on the bonds, levies and recalls you may see on your ballot, depending on where you live.

Our interactive tool, available here, will help you tell what's on your ballot, then walk you through the candidates in your party's primary to help build a list you can print out or email.

Some important dates: May 13 is the last day for early voting in both Ada and Canyon counties. May 11 is the last day to ask for a mail-in absentee ballot.

May 17 is Election Day. Polls will be open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Absentee ballots must be returned to county clerks' offices by 8 p.m.

Don't see a particular candidate in here? Some are unopposed and might not fill out the guide; others are still submitting their answers. Check back and they may show up later.

And for candidates: Don't see yourself in here? Missed our invitations to participate? Contact elections@idahostatesman.com to be added.

Check back in the coming days for links to video interviews with the candidates, another chance to hear them in their own words.

Again, that link to the voter guide is right here. Thank you for voting!
