Political Website Review

Posted by saratogahiker on 50 Points
This is a website currently in development for a small-town political campaign; just looking for a review from some other people. It currently isn't mobile-friendly, so for now please review on a desktop.

Thank you!

    First impression - the candidate should have a professional headshot and images on the home page should be with her interacting in the community. It's not about her - it's how well she works with others to get things done.

    Agree 100% with Jay.

    I agree with Gary and Jay. The images on the site need to show the target audience (i.e., voters) interacting with the candidate. Make it all about THEM and how their lives will be better if they elect your candidate, not about her and what SHE wants to do.

    Thanks for the feedback. I agree that more action pics would be nice, but, unfortunately, there aren't many images available to choose from. This is a very small community of about 2,000 people.

    Can't you get the candidate to go out with you for an hour or two, shake a few hands, kiss a few babies, and let you take some pics with familiar landmarks in the background? (Town hall, local coffee shop, library, elementary school, etc.)

    The town doesn't have a grocery store, coffee shop, library, or school. There are no public areas in town where people just hang out unless there's a local fair visiting. However, she just found a few images from past events that I may add to the homepage. I don't really want to make the homepage longer, but it may help show more "community" immediately.
