DemocracyNet (DNet) has a new face! Browse http://www.dnet.org to experience the new look and feel of the website.
DNet is a project of the League of Women Voters Education Fund. It is designed to provide voters easy access to candidate information, thus creating a more educated electorate. Candidates for political office are encouraged to enter biographical profiles, issue statements and other pertinent campaign information. They may also engage the public through online “debate”.
Selected statewide races are supported in DemocracyNet 2004. Alabama’s seven U.S. Congressional races and one U.S. Senate race are posted online with sixteen candidate profiles. Eight candidates are actively participating. You can view candidate information in your legislative district by clicking on the “See All My Candidates and Races” tab and entering your street address and city name in the space provided. The eight proposed constitutional amendments and a new link to the “All About Alabama Elections” are also posted in this area.
Visit the site frequently during this election cycle, and encourage your friends and family to do so as well. Capitol Advantage LLC, administrator of the website, will measure its effectiveness at the end of this election year by recording the number of races and candidate profiles posted, evaluating the level of candidate participation and registering the number of site visits. Support we generate will help ensure the continuation of this online source of non-partisan candidate and election information.
