May Common Ground E-Newsletter

2015 May 07

Once again, Vote Smart is receiving high praise. This weekend, Vote Smart appeared on the front page of the website Reddit, which serves as a platform for users to share and vote on information from the internet:
"Project Vote Smart - See how politicians voted on policies, how they stand on certain issues, etc. Basically, an easy-as-pie guide to being an educated voter!"
On Reddit, anyone can submit content from the internet, and users vote for or against it. Only the most popular posts are promoted to the front page. Comments on the post included lively discussion, sharing of resources for users outside the US, and great some great feedback.
It is clear that more and more people understand and appreciate the work Vote Smart does. We provide citizens access to detailed information on politicians’ bios, votes, funding, speeches, issue stances, and special interest ratings.
