A big congratulations to the LWV volunteer team who worked so hard to make this happen. They spent hours learning the Vote411.org data system, they developed questions for the candidates, they figured out how to get in touch with all of the candidates, they worked with the County Clerk to get the accurate ballot proposal language for all of the county wide proposals, they set up a slew of races on vote411.org and had to figure out what GIS codes applied to each race so that voters could access their own individualized ballots, they did their best to track down candidates by phone, email, etc. to get their responses to the questions. Meanwhile the volunteers met regularly with the Mining Journal to lay out plans for the guide and to figure out what the Mining Journal needed. Once all of the information was in the Vote411.org system the volunteers figured out how to get what the Mining Journal wanted in the computer file format that they wanted in. Without their work our local races and ballot proposals would not have been on the Vote411.org system and this guide would not have been in the Mining Journal Saturday morning papers. They figured it all out and made election information available for the entire county and beyond!
