New Wiki Based Political Candidate Tracker

From the folks at Open Congress comes a new source of information on your favorite candidates for public office. You can see a full list of all the potential challengers in your district, fundraising information for each, as well as a summary of recent electoral trends. All of the information is fully referenced.

It's a wiki, so the whole project is crowd-sourced. The idea is that if a lot of people contribute a little bit of knowledge, the RaceTracker will become a one-stop shop for local citizens to learn more about electoral politics in our area and become better voters. People can begin there journey into this knowledge base by checking out the blog.

Best of all, RaceTracker is free, open-source, non-partisan, and collaborative. Add what you know to the wiki, citing a news source, and help build public knowledge about Congress. You can check out the Racetracker Page here.
