Too often in school board elections, voters lack the information they need to make the best decisions. In an effort to change that, Chalkbeat has launched two tools to help voters in Denver, Aurora, Jefferson and Douglas counties navigate this fall’s election.

First, voters can keep up with the latest from the campaign trail at our Election 2015 page.

Second, we asked the candidates — all 32 of them — in those four contests to respond to questions about state and local issues. We hope their answers will illuminate important differences and help guide your decisions.

Click here for candidate responses in Denver, Jeffco, Aurora and Douglas County.

A unique feature of our candidate guide, which we call the Election Engine, is that a unique URL is generated for every question and every candidate. If you want to share an individual candidate’s responses, you can click on the candidate’s photo to generate a new URL. If you want to share a roundup of responses to one question, click on the question for a unique URL.

We hope you find our election coverage helpful in coming weeks. If you have any questions, concerns or story tips, please let us know at co.tips@chalkbeat.org.

Thanks for reading Chalkbeat!
