Our ballot is different from Central Committee funded ballots. We voted No on Gas Tax for Highway Patrol and No Endorsement on License Collector and Judges. Many want to vote No on a lot of judges and we would have had to print sample ballot on ledger size paper. So we went with practical and decided No Endorsement on Judges.
