The underlying information required to generate personalized ballots sometimes including the location of the polling place based on a voter's address was gathered from:

All candidates in the fully-participating counties were invited by letter to provide data for their free web pages. All information about candidates was gathered from the candidates themselves either by entering the data on a web form or by filling out a hard copy form and mailing it to us.

A small percentage of counties have a partial implementation of Smart Voter features. In some counties, not all contests are included. In others, the ballot lookup feature and/or polling place locator are not implemented. Sometimes candidates were not invited to supply information for a Smart Voter web page. The choice of level of implementation is made by the League of Women Voters and is usually a function of available people resources.


The League neither supports nor opposes candidates or political parties.
