what others are saying about project vote smart ...

"For reliable, meat and potatoes political information, research experts nearly all recommend Project Vote Smart.

"One of the best all around sources for information on elections and issues at the national and state level."

The project vote smart website provides instant and free access to a database on candidates and issues along with presidential candidate speeches (searchable by keyword and phrase), project vote smart publications (full text), youth inclusion program (where you can match your issue responses with those of the candidates) and links to all the best sites on the internet with government and political information. You can even register to vote or find out who your candidates are by putting in your zip code.
