We are an all-volunteer effort and we're looking for more help with gathering live data during debates, corresponding with candidates, and spotting media coverage to add to our resources. If you are a resident or business owner in the Town of Vienna and you want to lend a hand, please reach out to us today!

We do ask, though, that volunteers not be currently on the ballot, donating to campaigns, or committed to a public endorsement process -- for those races we have decided to cover.
