Voter’s Guide 2014

Election-VoterGuide

The general election is Tuesday, November 4th and if you’re like me you’re trying to figure out how you will vote. Navigating all of the sites, and figuring it all out is crazy making. On top of that I can’t find a site that is easy to use that has all of our ballot information on it in one place. So I made us one, below is a list of the items on our ballot with links to websites for every candidate. I have also included ballot measure information, as well as for and against. There is also a list of websites that are following some of these items and what they think. I have tried to make it as evenly balanced and non partisan as possible. All the links below are meant to allow you to inform yourself on the issues and vote as you see best. The information is in the same order as the official ballot which many of you should have already received in the mail.
