As a citizen, it is your duty to know what the candidates' platforms
are.  This is not that difficult.  You can usually find basic
information on all candidates running for election at the League of
Women Voters' site at http://www.lwv.org.

Otherwise, if you're familiar enough with the platforms of the major
political parties in the area and support those platforms, I see no
problem with just voting a straight ticket.
