About Smart Voter

Smart Voter provides nonpartisan information on elections and voting. Our goal is to offer the complete list of all contests on your ballot including local offices. Where possible we obtain this information by a collaboration of the nonpartisan League of Women Voters with election officials to present an accurate and complete ballot.

This service is free to voters and free to candidates. It is sponsored by grants and donations, and managed by a team of volunteers and staff of League of Women Voters members in communities around the U.S. It is a project of the League of Women Voters of California Education Fund, a 501(c)(3) nonpartisan organization.

Voter's Edge California (VEC) is a partnership between the League of Women Voters of California Education Fund and MapLight to produce an online voter guide in California. Launching in time for California's June 2016 Primary election, it will provide voters with their personalized ballot containing comprehensive, nonpartisan, plain language election information.
