Political theater: a mock-vote in Mynamar, 2010 (AFP)

A wise person I’m too lazy to google once said, “If voting could change anything, it would be illegal.” I personally don’t think voting does any good, but it’s better than some hobbies out there, and we do live in a region with unusually interesting local politics.

So, this is a collection of left-leaning or in many cases non-party or anti-party Voting Guides for metro New Orleans. The site is partly inspired by (although claims no endorsement from) the “League of Pissed-Off Voters” guides circulated in print through the mid-2000s.

My most recent voter’s guide, a symptom of my unhealthy obsession with local politics, is here and includes a capsule discussion of each recommendation.

If you have a voter’s guide that isn’t bullshit and would like it on this site, please contact xjulesbentleyx@gmail.com

You can examine sample ballots at the Secretary of State’s site, as well as get general “where to vote” type info.
