I'll definitely look forward to this site in the next election. A Perfect 10! --Santa Clara County

This is an outstanding site. A wonderful way to keep informed. All the information was in one place. I love the real audio debates from KQED's forum program. I moved and had to vote fail safe. I may not have been able to do it with out this information. --Santa Clara County

Thank you for creating an informative, easy to use, and comprehensive website. I did not receive my voter handbook for the upcoming elections, and needed information about the entire ballot. --A student, Santa Cruz County

Awesome web site. Very friendly, very well thought-out. You can let candidates know that at least one voter won't vote for candidates who are too lazy to provide you info for voters to read. --San Diego County professional web site developer

From Candidates...

Voters have told me that of all elections, they usually receive the least information about judicial candidates. Thank you for an outstanding means of communicating with the voters; a great public service. --Santa Clara County judicial candidate

Thank you for the opportunity for providing all candidates with the opportunity to give information without cost to the public in your non-partisan manner. The format is simple to use and has been particularly informative in this year of redistricting. --Los Angeles County
