What is NextGen Politics?

Learn more about local issues and candidates on the November ballot at ABC7's innovative NextGen Politics page right here at ABC7NEWS.COM. It's back and bigger and better than ever.

ABC7 is taking NextGen Politics to a higher level. It is an in-depth election site like no other in the country. It is quite literally the next generation of politics.

"NextGen Politics is sort of a different way of looking at candidates," says NextGen Politics' Richard Hertz.

At no charge, we invited hundreds of candidates from local races around the Bay Area to come to ABC7 or submit a five-minute unedited message explaining who they are and what they stand for.

You can now see and hear what candidates in your local races have to say at the click of a mouse.

At NextGen Politics you can check out endorsements or browse through the answers to written questions we posed to candidates.

"I don't think that anyone has ever done anything like this," says Hertz.

This is the next generation of political campaigning, and we hope you take advantage of it.
