Hi, welcome to the site, my name is Johanna Herman.
I am a Staff Writer here on Ballotpedia, working on many issues on the site. I started working on the site In September of 2009 and am deeply involved in local ballot measures across the country. I mainly focus on local ballot issues and keep busy with up coming local elections.
My background includes a year of study in Germany working on a masters degree in European Law. Before that I attended Trinity College in Washington DC and majored in International Affairs. While local issues were never my focus, I have found a place here and am greatly enjoying all the local issues I have come to learn about through working here.
I am also currently trying to add and expand on International Ballot Measures found throughout the world.
