A well-informed public is essential to a successful democracy.
With primary season in full swing and midterms just around the corner, it is imperative that we, as Americans, are accurately informed about who is running for office. Vote Smart will keep you up-to-date with all the facts you need to find your ideal candidate.
As John Adams once said, "Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence."
Here at Vote Smart, we believe facts are the foundation of our democracy. For our democracy to survive, we must preserve the truth. No spin, no bias, just facts.
Vote Smart needs every thinking American to rise up, throw away the “political poo” and defend our right to the facts.
