Why volunteer your time for Ballotpedia?

Web48.png Audience
Ballotpedia is a leading source for information on elections, ballot measures, and ballot history. The work you create on Ballotpedia is read by thousands of specialist and lay readers every day, and our articles are consistently found at the top of search engine rankings. Instead of building your own audience from scratch, the one built into our wiki welcomes you.
Users48.png Community
We don't have block parties or a PTA, but Ballotpedia is an active online community. We come together for the purpose of spreading information about American democracy, and we're passionate about what we do. We help each other in reaching our collective goals.
Help.png Support
Our promise to our fellow volunteers is to immediately join your efforts, refining and improving any content you contribute. We might add entirely new sections to your article, add links, or bring the text in-line with our community standards. In the spirit of support, we also offer free weekly wiki training to help you get started.
Lock48.png Protection
Along with the support and community we offer, we promise to protect your contributions. Your article will always be yours, and though others might come behind and add to it or improve it, we ensure it's kept safe. We vigilantly guard against vandalism to make sure your additions will be here for years to come.

A wiki is different from blogs and other online media because it presents comprehensive information on a subject on one page, forever. That means a article you create can become the definitive resource on the topic. And since Ballotpedia hosts the data, you can rest easy knowing your contributions will last as long as the internet. And that's a long time.
