About these pages:
America works best when Americans vote. But the percentage of eligible voters who cast their ballots continues to decline election after election. According to a study by Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, 23 million Americans contacted an elected official over a two year period, but didn't bother to go vote! We think something needs to be done.
These pages are designed to give you the information and tools you need to make it to the polls and cast an informed vote. We've included voter registration and absentee ballot information and forms for every state in the union, and the District of Columbia. We've included tools to locate and contact your elected officials. You can write your legislators on important pending legislation. And, as candidates file for office and votes that matter are cast, we'll present candidate guides and voting records.
Throughout these pages we present information to assist you in casting your vote and becoming more involved in the electoral process. But we don't - and won't - tell you how to vote. That decision is up to you.
