Ideology Takes the Place of Party in Non-Partisan Elections
We work on a lot of down ballot county and municipal campaigns across the country. Many of the races including judges races, sherifs races, county executive campaigns, school boards, city council and mayors races are non-partisan elections (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nonpartisanism). The difference between a partisan and a non partisan election is that a non partisan candidate doesn’t run with a party designation. Many folks mistakenly see these elections as non-ideological, but the truth is most races whether they are partisan or not, split on ideological lines.
