Reviews for Project Vote Smart

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had the greatest pleasure working with Project Vote Smart. The people here are dedicated to their work, which is to spread the facts about politicians. I would encourage you to visit their website http://votesmart.org to find information about your candidate's public statements, interest group ratings, campaign contributions, and issue positions.

I decided to work for Vote Smart because of its mission. There are Conservatives and Liberals everywhere that believe in us and believe that the facts ARE important. It keeps me from feeling defeated by the current political climate and is a constant reminder of why I choose to contribute to the organization. The culture of the organization is unlike any non profit I've ever worked for. People ages 18 to 87 come and work together at our beautiful Montana ranch for the common goal to strengthen democracy.

Vote Smart efficiently spends it's time and money to get accurate non-partisan information on all levels of government. The staff, although young, has the drive to make a difference in today's turbulent political climate, presenting the raw facts to voters instead of presenting information with a hidden agenda.

Vote Smart provides unbiased information on political candidates to Americans - this is much needed during this terrible election season! The organization does a great job of communicating with donors and provide an invaluable resource to voters, something that no other non-profit does as accurately.

Project Vote Smart is an excellent resource for voter information on candidates running for and currently in office. It's ability to remain non-partisan is probably the most important aspect of this organization due to the mud slinging that you see in modern American politics today.

Votesmart is a great non-profit that is providing numerous amounts of information about the political system to everyday citizens who might not otherwise have the information available to them. The work we do is very important and takes lots of time and dedication. All the staff members work together to provide the best information possible while taken a vow of non-partisanship. Its all about the facts.

I once wrote to Project Vote Smart asking about a rating they had received from an organization that rates charities. The head of the project wrote me a long letter with a great explanation about how they don't easily fit into the rating categories and I am now a donor for life. They do amazing work on a shoestring budget, and manage to stay neutral while reporting facts.
