Ballotpedia's goal

Our goal is to cover information about every elected official in the United States. Ballotpedia was created to help individuals make informed decisions about their elected officials. To do that, they need high-quality information about elections, incumbents and candidates at all levels of government. Putting information online makes it possible to produce easily accessible information on all three branches of government -- executive, legislative and judiciary -- at all three levels -- federal, state and local.

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.
