 New York City Honors Vote Smart –Again!

 

 A few years ago Vote Smart was selected by New York’s Museum of Modern Art as the best example of making complex data understandable to citizens.  They focused on our VoteEasy tool.  

 Now again, Vote Smart has been selected.  This time by Gutfreund Cornett Art for its “Change the World Through Art,” program as its exhibition highlight.  The exhibition, “What’s Right, What’s Left: Democracy in America” will run from January 6-30th at the Phoenix Gallery in Chelsea. They have even included our Vote Smart video on their web site!

Someone would have already done it!”   IF YOU ARE NOT YET A SUPPORTER OF OUR WORK, YOU NEED TO BE. PLEASE JOIN US AND HELP US ANYWAY YOU CAN.

We have a cat here at the Great Divide Ranch, an orange tabby by the name of Franklin. He's mostly an outdoor cat, but, sometimes, when the weather is especially bleak we take pity and let him into the office.
