That is, I have created a directory that will contain every statewide and legislative race that will take place in Alabama in 2006. The directory's accuracy will be maintained throughout the 2006 cycle to the best of my ability. I want to make the directory as comprehensive as possible, including candidates of all parties as well as any campaign websites.
The directory is a work in progress and I am still playing with the format, trying to add as much information as possible while still making it user-friendly. Please give me some feedback either through the comment function or through email and let me know how I can improve the format of the directory.
For now I have made available the constitutional offices page (Gov. Lt. Gov, AG, etc), a separate page for statewide judicial elections, and the State Senate page. I am still working on the State House page, but expect it to be up in the next few days.
Since the directory will include more than 150 races, I will need reader input in keeping it updated. State legislative races and even appellate court races often fly under the radar and it is nearly impossible for one person to stay abreast of all the political machinations in every race.
I will add a permanent link to the site that keeps the directory front and center.
So please check out the AlabamaElections Directory and don't forget to email me with any information on candidates (potential or official), or campaign websites that I have not yet listed.
