Qualifying for House and Senate races begins two weeks from today. A number of candidates have made their intentions known already and are out there asking for donations and votes. We’re doing our best to keep you informed of the names of those candidates and which district they’re running in. Below are the most recent spreadsheets of House and Senate races showing the incumbent and the challengers. This information comes from the DOI filings and news reports. If you have information about a candidate running for State level office please either post it in the comments or email me at buzzbrockway-at-gmail.com. Please tell us about *real* candidates, not trial balloons or sock puppet foolishness.
Someone in the comments asked me about posting the new district lines over a street map so folks can determine their new districts. I tried to import those maps into Google Maps but the files are too large.
The best way to view that information is in Google Earth. Download Google Earth (file here) then go to this website and download the various Google Earth files. Open Google Earth then click on “open” and open the House, Senate or Congressional map files you saved to your computer.
That’s the best I can come up with until one of our readers comes up with a better solution.
