Check out https://ballotpedia.org/Main_Page

I've posted about this site before. Why?

1 - Not because I have a personal stake in it. No idea who runs it, etc.

2 - I like to share good political stuff on DU.

3 - I have a very strong interest in Dems getting active at the downest, downest down ballot level. We've got to take our country back! So I want to encourage DU members to get interested if they're not already. This place is a very easy place to get unexpected info about what's going on around you.

4 - I want to support web sites that encourage this sort of down ballot activity. To that end, I'll also plug ItStarts.Today

Do any of you have suggestions for other organizations/web sites that are facilitating down ballot activity?

P.s. Since I'm on the topic I'll share the silver lining behid Greg Cava's loss for the CT senate seat on Tuesday. In a district that hasn't gone Democratic since 1891 (NOT a typo), and where he lost by 33% points in the previous election, he lost by only 11% in this one. So next time we need to just get 5+ points to flip the seat. I don't even live in CT, but adopted this race.

1. K & R ......for visibility..

I'm all for the down ballot activity too.

Gotta do this at the grassroots and build bottom up.

2. Ballotpedia is a great site.

[font color="navy" face="Verdana"]Lots of information there. It's a major resource when I want to learn about a particular office holder, candidate, or ballot issue.

Thanks for giving it wider exposure.
