Project Vote Smart cultivates a network of advisors who inform and substantiate the Project's work. Our advisors are leading experts in political science, academic researchers, and journalists from across the political spectrum. Together, they review every key vote selection, every bill summary, and every question presented to candidates through the Political Courage Test to ensure absolute nonpartisanship, relevance, clarity, and accuracy.
