A guide to Newsday’s 2016 endorsements


In making our endorsements, we weigh which candidate is better, compared with the other, in any given contest. We make our choices after interviewing the office seekers, researching and reporting.

The editorial board invited for interviews all 72 candidates in contested federal and state races; five declined to meet with us.

We hope our voice offers quiet insight at a time when all there seems to be is shouting.
