VoteEasy: Visual Election Candidate Comparison

 

VoteEasy is an interactive website designed by Project Vote Smart.  Very useful in America with election coming up next week.

 

After you choose your location, the VoteEasy site looks up the candidates specific to your area.  By entering your opinions on 12 critical issues and how important each issue is to you, the site shows you which candidates most closely match your beliefs.  Some candidates have submitted their answers, and the rest are inferred from the public records.

I made up some answers for New York since I don’t live there and don’t have any opinions on those candidates.  The site broke up the candidates into the two different Senate races and a House seat race currently on the ballot: 

 

You can click on a particular candidate to get specific information about them and their political record.

Thanks for highlighting VoteEasy, Randy.

The tool was actually designed by Periscopic ( http://www.periscopic.com ) for Project Vote Smart, and uses their API to visualize the data.

We like your site, thanks for all the great posts.
