With local elections steadily approaching you have to ask yourself, how well do I know the candidates?
A new website hopes to help you answer that question and get you better acquainted with those running for the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors and the Charlottesville City Council.
Charlottesville Tomorrow recently released their updated Election Watch website for the 2007 elections and they're hoping to make you more informed about the candidates.\
The site gives the public access the candidates' bios, interviews, candidate forums and campaign contributions. Visitors can download candidate podcasts and a map breaks down who you'll have on your ballot.
There's even a place for bloggers. All in an effort to help the public make an informed decision when the time comes to vote.
"The ultimate goal is to give citizens and residents of the area the information that they need to make an informed choice come November" said Sean Tubbs of Charlottesville Tomorrow.
And Charlottesville Tomorrow says they do not endorse any of the candidates. They say their job is to keep the public informed about the issues.
