With Vote411, voters can enter their address to find their polling place, build a ballot with our online voter's guide and much more! The Vote411 voters' guide lets you see the races on your ballot, compare candidates' positions side-by-side, and print out a "ballot" indicating your preferences as a reminder and take it with you to the polls on Election Day.
An effective voter guide starts with insightful questions for all of the candidates; questions that we think help voters determine who should earn their vote. Our Voter Services committee develops questions for each election cycle, and will post them here. Candidates who choose to answer will have their information listed at vote411.org.
