As of 9am today, early voting in the May 2014 primary election is underway. That means it's time for the annual OrangePolitics endorsement thread where we ask you, if you feel so inclined, to share with the community who you are voting for (or would vote for) and why.
As always, this is a special-rules post. The rules: Only write who you're voting for (and why, if you like). You may also list the people you would vote for if you lived in their districts. Do not refer in any way to to any candidates you are not supporting. If you don't follow the rules, your comment will be removed. You're free to critique the candidates through comments on other posts or by posting your own blog entry. In fact, you're warmly invited to do so!
It's that time of year again. Early voting is already underway, and those of us who pay literally any attention to local politics are frequently asked by the rest of the world for whom they should vote.
We have a big primary in North Carolina this year. I'm overseas and will be voting as soon as I get that ballot in hand. So, please share your endorsements here! Especially for the local and state offices; I'm already pretty clear on the presidential primary.
