Elections 2011 – What’s on Your Ballot?

“Politicians are like diapers; they need to be changed often and for the same reason.” ― Mark Twain

We vote on Tuesday in what’s termed an “off-off election” meaning … fewer people vote, so your vote will matter more. Please vote.

Here are a few resources:

Charlottesville Tomorrow’s Albemarle County Board of Supervisors Candidate information

Charlottesville Tomorrow’s Charlottesville City Council Candidate information

The Daily Progress rounds up all of the local elections. (great job)

– Unfortunately, Charlottesville Tomorrow doesn’t cover the other important races, but luckily The HooK offers snapshots of the various races, including Albemarle County School Board (I’m endorsing Ned Gallaway for this race), Soil and Conservation District (I like Lonnie Murray)

cvillenews gives a succinct rundown of which races are on the ballots. I’d clip a bit of Waldo’s post, but really, just read the whole thing.

I’ve done the googling so you don’t have to:

Albemarle County provides sample ballots for each district.
Fluvanna County has sample ballots as well.
The City of Charlottesville has a sample ballot

If you’re trying to figure out what’s on your ballot (and really, you should be) the State Board of Elections provides and excellent resource for figuring out who’s running for what. (I had no idea this was there)
