Voter Education

Voters have a right to be informed about candidates’ positions on issues. For the 2016 City of Richmond Elections, Bike Walk RVA administered questionnaires to each candidates running for the office of Mayor or City Council to see where they stand on biking and walking policies, planning, and funding in Richmond.  Bike Walk RVA’s candidate questionnaire is strictly educational in nature — our goal is to educate candidates on the important issues that affect the biking and walking in the city, as well as inform voters as to where the candidates stand on those issues.

Sports Backers is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and does not support or oppose candidates or political parties.
