NC Politics 101

Of all the new features on BlueNC, the one I'm most excited about is the ability to collaboratively write and maintain books. Imagine an online reference where you could find everything you would want to know about NC politics—from your representative's biography, to registration dates; from a list of incumbents and challengers by district, to an in-depth discussion of redistricting. That's the goal, and here's my favorite part: if everyone contributes what they know, we'll accomplish it in no time!

If you know something about politics in North Carolina—after all, you do read blogs on the topic—sign up for an account (free; easy) and add to the book. I've laid out a few chapter titles, but there's no shortage of pages to be written. Don't worry about putting every piece of information in the right place—others are working on the book with you, and we can always move pages around.

I think I'll go add a page about Mebane.
