Now online — Florida 2012 Election Websites

with one comment

Hi everyone!

On the eve of the Florida 2012 Primary Elections tomorrow, August 14, 2012, I’m sure some of you may still be trying to find information on candidates and the issues that is as accurate, non-partisan, and unbiased as possible.

I myself haven’t been fortunate, perhaps because I started searching late.  It has been a busy summer.

In any case, many Florida newspapers have now published their endorsements and have created 2012 election news website pages.  Readers can find some of them listed below.

Florida Times-Union (Jacksonville) August 2012 Editorial Page Endorsements at http://jacksonville.com/opinion/editorials/2012-08-12/story/roundup-newspapers-endorsements

Miami Herald Voter’s Guide at http://www.miamiherald.com/voters-guide/

Orlando Sentinel Voter Guide website at http://elections.orlandosentinel.com/2012/august/home/index/federal

Palm Beach Post Elections 2012 website at http://www.palmbeachpost.com/s/news/elections/

Sun Sentinel Elections 2012 website at http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/elections/

Tampa Bay Times Know Your Candidates 2012 website at http://www.tampabay.com/specials/2012/reports/kyc2012/primary/index.shtml

Other websites

Politifact Florida’s website (sponsored in part by the Tampa Bay Times and the Miami Herald) assesses the truth of candidate statements at http://www.politifact.com/florida/

The League of Women Voters for Palm Beach County’s site, where one can find information on events, candidate forums, issues and studies,  and so on, is located at http://www.lwvpbc.org/

You may also wish to  take a look at the League of Women Voters’ Vote411 Guide.  I did not locate enough specific information for the August Primary in Palm Beach County, but perhaps the guide will have more for the upcoming November 2012 elections.

The Town of Lantana intends to purchase waterfront property on the west side of the intra-coastal waterway on the north part of Lake Drive for $965,000.  This follows on on earlier purchase made by the Town in the same area in December of 2011 for $1.2 million.
