With only two days left before the election, the Campaign column will eschew any titillating tales and jocular jibes at candidates.

Instead, we offer the following list of phone numbers - and, where available, Web sites - of campaigns for or against ballot issues, and of candidate headquarters, for those voters who still need a little information to make up their minds:
