MID-TERM ELECTIONS:
NO ONE CARES, NO ONE VOTES?
 
Year after mid-term election year the stats say that is so. But not with Smart Voters. A month before the election and we have already had 7.7 million unique visitors. That already eclipses visits during the last full presidential election cycle (when far more citizens are engaged) and vastly more than the last mid-term election cycles. Perhaps more importantly, our visitors are spending 25% more time on our site and seeing far more pages of data.
In the world of Vote Smart, that is significant and reason to be very hopeful.
