Voters Guide 2007
Organization always counts in politics, but never more so than in party primaries. With turnout traditionally low, the candidate who can most effectively target and motivate a relatively small number of voters has the best chance to win.
Tuesday in Fairfax County, 10 Democratic and Republican candidates will put their organizational skills to the test for spots on the November ballot in races for the Virginia Senate, the House of Delegates and the Board of Supervisors. They've knocked on hundreds of doors, distributed reams of literature, consumed massive amounts of coffee and barbecue at neighborhood gatherings and scuffled for campaign contributions.
All for a chance to do it again this fall.
