Provide Nonpartisan Election Information Online



Democracy depends and thrives on a well-informed citizenry that votes and takes civic engagement seriously. Smart Voter uses the Internet to provide voters with nonpartisan election information.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The democratic system is founded on the principle of consent of the governed. Yet in the last federal election less than half of all eligible citizens voted. Polls show that people are more likely to vote if they believe they have accurate information about the election and the voting process. Smart Voter is provided as a free public service by the League of Women Voters to help voters of all affiliations make educated decisions.

How will this project solve this problem?

Extensive, informative and easy to use, the League of Women Voters’ voter information website at is a user-friendly design providing access to a huge store of information of use to voters throughout the state.

Potential Long Term Impact

The goal of the project is to engage citizens in the voting process by providing good, unbiased information on which to base their decisions.
