Leslie Graves founded Ballotpedia in 2006 to bring quality political information to the American public. The staff of the Lucy Burns Institute has been fulfilling that mission ever since, providing the facts for voters so they can align their votes with their values.
Our goal is to provide you with accurate, up to date, and comprehensive information on all aspects of politics and public policy for years to come. But we're just a small non-profit... and we're asking for your help today.
Did you know that if everyone reading this today made a $5 donation to support Ballotpedia, all the work we did to inform you about the issues on the November ballot would be paid for in less than 24 hours?
That's right, it doesn't take much, and the result is a resource that helps millions of Americans participate in the democratic process. We hope you found the site useful, and that you take a moment to support our work with a $5 tax-deductible donation today. A flagship project of the nonprofit Lucy Burns Institute, Ballotpedia continues to grow because of donations from generous individuals like you. Thank you!
Checks may be made out to the Lucy Burns Institute and mailed to the address below.

When you include the local level, there are over 507,000 elected officials in the United States. Wouldn't it be great if individuals could find information about every single election, incumbent and candidate anywhere, at any level, for any branch of government? That's what we want to do.
