This book is a repository for information about political contests leading up to and taking place on November 7, 2006. It's a big topic, and the usefulness of this project will depend on BlueNC members' contributions to it. (If you're logged in, you can add and edit pages.)
The big races will get a lot of coverage on blogs and in the mainstream media. But for many smaller races, this book may be the only independent source of information on the internet. Google and other search engines index these pages, which means that your contributions to these smaller races can play a big role.
We should stick to the facts in this book. Personal blog entries are a good place for opinion, and there's no reason that these pages can't link to blog entries. But these pages will be much more useful if they focus on informing rather than persuading.
As far as I know, nothing like this has ever been attempted at the state and local levels, much less accomplished. I can't think of any reason why it can't be done, though, and I think that the BlueNC community is in a good position to do it. Here we go!
BlueNC is dedicated to freedom and fairness for the people of North Carolina. If you share that vision, welcome. If your intention is to disrupt our efforts, please find somewhere else to express your opinions.
