Following is a summary of recommendations The Register-Guard has made to voters for the May 21 primary election. The election is being conducted by mail; the summary is being presented now for the benefit of voters who wish to mark their ballots soon after receiving them. The editors are fallible human beings who stand an average chance of being wrong. However, these recommendations are made after sincere appraisals of the choices on the ballot. Where there are no contests, no recommendations are listed. The complete text of endorsement editorials published over the past several weeks is archived on The Register-Guard's website, www.registerguard.com.
