Here are some voter information websites and guides. We provide these links to encourage you to find out what will be on your ballot and to research the candidates. We neither endorse or disagree with the findings of these websites. We just observe that any website, whether operated by nonprofit or for-profit organization, is going to have some sort of bias. So please check as many sources as you can.
Unfortunately, voter information websites don’t seem to get up to full speed until the general election. Therefore, during the nomination process, we have to do more research on our own.
- Vote.gov. This is an official U. S. site. It points to voting and election resources on USA.gov.
- The Prince William County Office of Elections. Prince William County residents should go here to find out what will be on their ballot and where to vote.
- Voter Registration and Elections For The City of Manassas. Manassas residents should go here to find out what will be on their ballot and where to vote.
- Registrar of Voters For The City of Manassas Park. Manassas Park residents should go here to find out what will be on their ballot and where to vote.
- The Virginia Public Access Project. Provides information on where the candidates are getting their money.
- E.thePeople’s VOTE411 Voter Guide. Allows candidates to tell about themselves and answer questions.
- Vote411.org. League of Women Voters voter guide. Obviously related to E.thePeople.
- The Family Foundation of Virginia. Focuses on family issues with respect to the General Assembly. If you want to verify how the incumbents have been voting, check out their TFF-Action webpage and review the legislative report cards.
- Ballotpedia. This nonprofit and nonpartisan website collects quite a bit of information, and some of the legislative candidates have responded to their surveys. See Laura Sellers, for example. Except for School Board elections, this website doesn’t seem to have much interest in city and county elections.
- Vote Smart. This is another nonprofit and nonpartisan website. Doesn’t seem to have much information on the city and county elections, but you may find it useful for state legislative races.
