As a novice to Swiss politics, I would be interested to see some more information about upcoming referenda both at the Canton and Federal levels. So, does anyone know of any good websites showing what votes are coming up? Ideally with a summary of what the different arguments are for and against too... And if it's in English then even better!
Personally I'm interested in Geneva but if you know of sites specific to other cantons then please post too as I'm sure it will be useful.
I will update this post with the best sites as hopefully a useful resource for the future.

Here about FEDERAL votes : http://www.ch.ch/abstimmungen_und_wa...x.html?lang=en
a fairly important vote in the Canton of Zurich about the improvement of the railways network between Zurich and Winterthur www.wahlen.zh.ch/abstimmungen/2010_09_26/dokumente/Kant_Abst_Anord_26.9.2010.pdf
Basically, you have to see the difference between
- federal level (info in German, French, Italian)
- cantonal level (German+French in the Cantons of Valais/Wallis, Fribourg/Freiburg, Bern/Berne ; French in the Cantons of Geneva/Vaud, Neuch‚tel, Jura ; German in the Cantons of BL/BS/SO/AG/ZH/SH/TG/SG/AI/AR/GL/ZG/LU/UR/SZ/OW/NW ; German+Romansh+Italian in the Canton of GraubŁnden/Grischun/Grigioni ; Italian in the Canton of Ticino
- municipal level
languages ? depending on the place, the administration will hand out information in "non-official languages" including Spanish, Portuguese, Albanian, Greek, Turkish, Arabic, Tamil and English
