Ballotpedia is great compared to anything else in our state.
It falls far short.
This is how bad our state is about voter information. It really sucks. I Googled for sample ballot/voter information/etc. And the hits were dismal.
I got a ton of hits for old elections, of course. So I selected within the past month. Despite a unique county name in the search I got mostly hits for other counties and even states on the other side of the country!
One hit was for Ballotpedia’s page on my county. Which says at the top “This is a stub.” Dear Google: If a page contains the phrase “This is a stub.” and little else do not put it on the first page of results.
I also got a link to our county’s election web site. Which had a link to the state’s election site. Grrr. And of course that site was useless. It was basically a taxpayer supported site for the election campaign of the SoS. No ballot info at all.
The local paper came up. But again, no info just a link to the League of Women’s Voters site. Which was complete useless. I mean, you enter your address and still they have no clue as to what districts you are in or anything.
And on and on.
We voted early yesterday. Despite trying to find out as much as possible on all races, there was one race that no sample ballot or anything mentioned. But it was a minor post with only one incumbent candidate so we had no way to vote against him anyway. (In our county, always voting against the incumbent is a good idea.)
