From OpenCongress Wiki
The RaceTracker project on the OpenCongress wiki tracks every 2012 race for the U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives and state governor. RaceTracker is a free, open-source, fully-referenced, and non-partisan public resource. It is coordinated by the crew at Elections.DailyKos.com.
Here's what you can find:
- Candidates for each seat and their status
- Campaign contribution information
- District maps, past election results, and more
Select a state to see its candidates:
Examples of tracked races:
The power of the fully sourced and operational wiki project comes from the citizens across the country researching, writing and fact-checking the information here. It is free, open-source, transparent in its editing standards and sourcing, and non-partisan. All information on RaceTracker is required to be referenced to an outside news source, and no partisan information is included. RaceTracker serves the common interest of knowing everyone running to represent us in our government.
The RaceTracker wiki is coordinated primarily by the team at Elections.DailyKos.com, with assistance from the OpenCongress team. We encourage you to make any additions or corrections via the "Edit with form" tab at the top of every race page (you'll need to log-in to edit; see the "Join OpenCongress" link in the top right to register for free). You can also leave a question or message for JamesL, a RaceTracker project coordinator, on his "talk" page.
