This page provides links to a wide variety of governmental and political web sites. It differs from the Governance section in that it encompasses a broad spectrum of governmental categories as opposed to focusing strictly on our homes and our Association-related interests. It is loosely organized around a jurisdictional hierarchy. The available sites are useful for researching a business, a neighbor, an issue, a politician, or your legal rights. The web sites range from official governmental links to NGOs (non-governmental organizations) that either influence the decision-making process or are component to a larger bureaucracy.

The Governmental Categories are as follows:
