Professional with expertise in this field
The Lucy Burns Institute publishes two important online resources for members of the public: Ballotpedia and Judgepedia. I came across both of these helpful, accurate, and objective resources while doing internet research on political candidates and judges. LBI offers high quality products, and a breadth and depth of information that is unrivaled among other online resources. The work of this organization can be trusted, and I am grateful for their contributions to public knowledge and discourse.
