Howard County DistrictsLike many of the scorecards this month I am a little early with this evaluation but with only four days until early voting starts I thought it would be good to get this information out. If you are interested in last months evaluation you can read it here:

Here are my takeaways from the scorecard above:

Walter Carson added the most new Facebook followers since the last evaluation. This is two reporting periods in a row that the Carson team has added the most new followers. This is a nice trend for this team.

Ward Morrow continues to add to his overall follower lead on Twitter. His significant advantage on this platform is a technology strength of this team.

Frank Mirabile added a decent number of new Facebook followers and now holds the overall follower advantage on Facebook. Another positive sign for this team is that they lead all other candidates on Facebook engagement over the past week (see photo below).

Facebook Activity District 9A

Ward Morrow remains my overall technology outreach leader in the race. His Twitter following is just a hurdle the other candidates have yet to overcome. I will say that based on some of the recent numbers and activity that Frank Mirabile and Water Carson are closing in on that top spot.

Of course the reality of followers, likes, and subscribers does not mean a lot when it comes down to voting in the end, but it is a fun exercise to do and makes a great resource for following all of these candidates.
