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. 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.
UPDATE: Keystone XL Pipeline
Increase access to Canadian oil for job creation and economic development
Canada has always been an important supplier of resources to the United States. In fact, Canada provides more oil to the U.S. than all Persian Gulf countries combined. A new pipeline project would provide an opportunity to access even more oil from Canada and improve our energy security.
The federal government must take action to allow the building of the Keystone XL pipeline to get Canadian oil sands to American refineries. The period for public comment is now open. Click here to contact the State Department and for more information.
