Great info...the link for the ballots for each voting district is not working. You might want to point it in the right direction.

Hi djbemom - sorry about the broken link, thanks for letting me know! I'm going to also post the Lower Providence sample ballots in the media gallery above.

Why didn't you provide links to the alternate party candidates? Giving them an "oh, by the way" mention in one sentence hardly seems like appropriate coverage to me. I feel that a complete Elections Guide should inform the readers about all of the available candidates.
