Last week I proposed a tree of weblogs to bring issues of copyright and freedom to candidates attention in the upcoming elections. I've planted a seed that could grow into that tree with your help.
I propose a blogtag scheme for tracking elections - BlogTheVote[year][country] as one word, then an id for the constituency. For the US elections this would translate to BlogTheVote2002USA [state] [district], so if I were discussing the Coble/Grubb race, I'd add the words BlogTheVote2002USA NC 6 to the entry. If I were commenting on a Senatorial race, I'd leave off the district. Then a Google search for this tag in quotes will find all the tagged discussion of that race.
Congress.org can find your district from your zip code and lists candidates, which is a good starting point.
I've set up an initial weblog entitled ProSUA - To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts. If you want to join in and refine the questions for candidates, email me and I'll add you in. Please make state weblogs if your state does not have one yet, and link to your posts about the candidates there.
