think before you vote
The Internet offers a massive amount of information about political candidates. We have collected the best information available, so you can safely turn off your TV and ignore the negative and misleading political ads.
We fervently hope that someday all voters will research political candidates on the Internet - because if no one watches the expensive TV ads, then politicians can stop raising special interest money to pay for them. We call this "do-it-yourself" campaign finance reform!
