informed voter

We have pulled together this information in the hopes of creating a clearer picture of just who we vote for and when we vote for them. If you take just the executive and the legislative branches of government on the Federal, State, and Local level, you have 14 elected officials to vote for (if you live in Memphis).  For each office, we aim to answer a few questions. Who? Area Served? Term Limits? Next Election? And come voting time, you’ll want to check out our “Meet the Candidates” page, a list of candidates with links to their website and facebook pages.
