Standing Posting

Ballotpedia, the online encyclopedia of American politics, informs people about politics by arming them with accurate, objective information, for all levels of government.

Our coverage doesn’t start and end with Congress and the White House. We don’t stop at state legislatures or at the Texas Railroad Commissioner. We cover school boards, city councils, and county ballot measures.

Ballotpedia goes so local that we are able to provide 20% of United States citizens with a complete sample ballot. To do that, we need to write a lot of articles. So far, we’ve written over a quarter of a million articles on elected officials, candidates, influencers, elections, and more, all researched and written by our amazingly dedicated professional staff.

Ballotpedia was founded more than 10 years ago, in 2007. Since then we’ve had over 870 million page views, and we’ve been referenced in over 5,000 media outlets. From the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Politico to Huffington Post and National Review. Come November, you’ll find among the top 200 most visited sites in the United States.
