For just over ten years, Ballotpedia has been providing voters in the United States with factual, trustworthy election information. In that time, we’ve written over 265,000 encyclopedic articles which have garnered over one-billion pageviews and more than 35,000 media mentions. People are hungry for unbiased and accurate information about politics! The work we do takes place year-round with our writers gathering and verifying candidate and ballot measure information. That information is available to voters through our Sample Ballot. Ballotpedia’s Sample Ballot allows voters to quickly and easily see who and what is on their ballot from the federal level all the way down to local races like school board elections. The work we do throughout the year on ballot information culminates on Election Day. On November 6, 2018, voters across the country will be deciding on 35 U.S. Senate seats, 435 U.S. House seats, 6,070 state legislative seats, and numerous state executive and judicial seat. As Election Day rolls on, Ballotpedia’s staff will be working tirelessly to update our readers with the accurate and trustworthy information they’ve come to expect from us. Our staff of over 40 professional writers work in 6-hour shifts around the clock in the days leading up to and including Election Day making sure our information is up-to-date and accurate. While the work is serious, we do our best to make it fun for our staff as we come together to serve our readers. In fact, to show their appreciation for our work, we’ve even had some of our supporters send coffee gift cards to help support our staff in our ‘round the clock efforts to serve voters on Election Day. Ballotpedia’s Election day efforts are nothing short of awesome.
