How do you vote when unaware of the additional races?

My default is vote for the woman, if their is a woman included in the two choices.
I feel woman will either do the right thing, or will not be as easily corrupted. Plus as my wife said, that is good because you know 50% of the population is women, and we barely have any women as elected officials.

I heard people om the radio yesterday stating when this happens they go, uhm, yeah this looks good.
Made me think of what I did. I guess I trust women more than men when it comes to integrity.

I also do not cast votes for races in which I am not informed.
This. I try to research the names on the ballot ahead of time, but if unsure I will just not vote for that race. There were 30 names for Justice of the Peace positions on the VT ballot and you could pick up to 12. I didn't pick any. All the other state races (comptroller, sec of state, etc.) I had at least looked at a few newspaper endorsements and reasons prior to voting. There were 2 races I didn't vote on, all the others I felt informed enough on.
