Candidates & Issues

Ballot Ready
Preview your personalized ballot with candidate bios and stances, and all referendums explained. 

Ballot Ready is an excellent tool for first time voters and veteran voters alike. Just enter your zip code and e-mail address and get quick, easy access to all the basics you need to make an informed decision about who and what you're casting your precious vote towards. No surprises!
Ballot Ready is a fairly new site, so if your ballot isn't available right now, they'll let you know when it is.

Similar to Ballot Ready, Ballotpedia lets you know what will be on your ballot (and what it means) before you get into the voting booth. 
Find the state and district in which you vote on Ballotpedia's map and see what's on your next ballot!
Stay informed on issues and current events from all different perspectives.

Already an avid seeker of different perspectives? Challenge yourself to a little self-reflection with All Sides' "rate your own bias" tool and see how your own lens shapes your interpretation of the news.
