How difficult has it been for the voter - and for the media to keep up with all the candidates and elections?
But actually, through the magic of the internet, we really have no excuse for not having been informed, as this piece from the United States last year shows:
NOVEMBER 4, 2014, POSTED BY CALE COWAN
If you don't get informed before voting, there's no telling who could end up running your city.
If you think it's an exercise in overinflated bureaucracy having 13 municipalities in the Capital Regional District, just imagine the poor news editor trying to keep track of all of those candidates.
Plus four school districts.
It all boils down to about 250 candidates, give or take a David Shebib.
It's a mammoth project chasing down all those people, some of whom seem distinctly unaware that a newspaper reporter may be interested in their intentions, should they be elected.
But of those 250 candidates — give or take — we are still hunting only four people.
This was largely made possible through online magic, which allowed us to quickly put an information form in front of every single candidate who could find his or her way to a computer keyboard.
They filled out a questionnaire, like this one, and submitted their joy and passion for the municipal governmental process. We were able to quickly parse the data we received, and turned it into a page of information, like this.
Further, we took that same information and turned it into newspaper pages (like this one ^^) that are so chock full of information that people in Metchosin — et al. — have no excuse for being unable to make an informed choice on Nov. 15.
