My apologies, I’ve been way off the grid. Here are a few things I thought you all might have missed. Enjoy.

The Georgia League of Women Voters has a wonderful online tool to help you with your ballot. It’s very comprehensive-spend a few minutes checking it out. I promise you will learn something.


Sen. Fort minces few words on his opposition to TSPLOST. As you may already know, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed feels differently. Video of a recent Pro TSPLOST rally in Smyrna here.

The Cobb County Democratic Party will host a Candidate Forum this evening on local TV channel 23, watch it from the comfort of your couch. Details here. Important discussion on the County Commission race and congressional candidates will be featured.

2012 Primary Endorsement Lists: Atlanta Stonewall Democrats,  Georgia Equality, WIN List, Planned Parenthood Georgia, on the flip side…here are the endorsements from Georgia Right to Life-sometime it’s also about who NOT to vote for.

I always find it difficult to figure out the Judicial races, so few of those candidates will turn in a special interest groups questionnaire. Maybe this Atlanta Bar Association poll rating will help you. It’s better than nothing.

Add any last minute press releases, candidate volunteer requests and breaking news in the comments below.

Happy Voting!

  1. Waldo says:

    Clerk of courts, County Corner, Water and Soil Commissioner (Yes, this is real in some counties), and the non-binding primary opinion questions were not included in the Voter Guide.

    What is included?

    Over 1,000 candidates including ALL State House, ALL State Senate, PSC, Non-partisan Judicial Races (Supreme, Superior, Court of Appeals), District Attorney, County Elections for 21 Counties including County Commission, Board of Education, Sheriff, Tax Commissioner, State Court Judge, Magistrate Judge, and Probate Judge, city council election in Columbus and Special Elections in Marietta.

    The Run-off Voter Guide will include run-off elections and Bibb County Board of Education Elections that have been rescheduled due to redistricting snafus.

    The league of woman voters did not include all the races. It’s not about candidates returning questionnaires in, it’s about people sending the information to all candidates.

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .

    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress
    on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to
    another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.
    net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content
    into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
