Election Wire thumbnail

With election campaigns relying increasingly on social media, LkldNow introduces the Lakeland Election Wire, a single place to track all of the local candidates’ Facebook posts.

Each of the 15 announced candidates for Lakeland mayor and City Commission is using Facebook to connect and converse with voters. So are the organizations working for and against the ballot initiative to introduce a strong mayor form of government to Lakeland.

The Election Wire puts all of their posts in a single place so voters don’t have to monitor multiple Facebook profiles to see what the candidates and campaigns are saying.

Watch for more election coverage and campaign tools at LkldNow.com between now and the Nov. 7 elections.
