We've made some impressive changes to our homepage at www.votesmart.org, check them out now!
There's a lot of information on votesmart.org. And people use us for a lot of different reasons. But as we get closer to the election and start to see more and more first-timers coming to our site (please tell your friends!!) we started to think about what really makes Project Vote Smart valuable in an election year. We decided that being able to quickly and easily find the people you're going to be voting for in November (as well as tons of information about them) is our #1 feature.
That's why now when you go to votesmart.org you'll see our main search bar front-and-center, so you can find your elected officials and those wishing to replace them – fast – just by entering in your zip code or mailing address. Or if you've heard about someone or something in the news and want to do some research, you can type in a representative's name, or even a keyword, and find out everything you wanted to know and more.
Change can be hard. If you ever have questions, concerns, or comments about our new website design or any aspect of what we do, please don't hesitate to contact us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 1-888-VOTESMART.
