Public Statement

Voter's Edge California has unveiled new "cards" that provide summary information, such as top donors and endorsements, about candidates and statewide ballot measures in a condensed, convenient format. Media outlets and nonprofit organizations can easily integrate ballot measure and candidate cards into any webpage to supplement their coverage of election contests and help voters research their ballots. The cards are available at no cost and are automatically updated with new campaign contribution data.

California voters looking for detailed information ahead of the November 8 election can use Voter's Edge California, a comprehensive online voter guide in English and Spanish, to explore information on candidates' experience, priorities, endorsements and top donors as well as ballot measure explanations and campaign funding. Voter's Edge California is a joint project of MapLight and the League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (LWVCEF).
