Project Vote Smart has everything you need for informed voting

To the editor:

As the elections approach, I feel it’s important that my fellow citizens know about Project Vote Smart, a non-partisan group of students and volunteers from all over the country who have put together a massive factual database on politicians. My wife and I used this incredible resource last election time and it made things so much easier!

Vote Smart gathers the voting records, biographies, public statements (issue or even key word searchable), issue positions, who gives candidates money, even the ratings done by over 200 competing special interests on every candidate and official. They make it so you don’t need to listen to all the self-serving nonsense of campaigns anymore.

You can get just the facts on Vote Smart’s website,, or even call them on their toll-free Voter’s Research Hotline at 1-888-VOTE-SMART and one of their researchers will look up anything you need to know.
