Information in Candidate Tracker was compiled and written by The Local’s team of journalists and fact checkers. Candidates were emailed a questionnaire asking for information about their history, experience, and plans; not all candidates were reachable or responded. The Local also conducted its own research to independently source and verify information about each candidate. Candidate Tracker will expand and be updated as the election campaign continues.
