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.

I have found that Project Vote Smart does a remarkable job of providing information on candidates, parties, issues, and everything election-relation that I need/want. I usually start with Project Vote Smart for researching voting related info, and branch out from there as needed.

As someone who has worked in Congress for both sides (a Democratic Senator and Republican Congressman), I have seen my share of partisan politics. From those experiences, I know first-hand that voters need access to unfiltered non-partisan information to be active members of our democratic society. Votesmart is one of the few sources where the public can get that information. Without donations from people with a stake in process versus the partisan programship, this important and unique resources might disaspper. I write to support the efforts and goals of Votesmart and its tireless employees and volunteers (that/who just also happen to be located in one of the most beautiful parts of the US - great for visiting - I have been and watched the team at work!).
