About Us

BallotReady makes digital tools to help inform and turn out voters on their entire ballot, every election, powered by the most comprehensive database to local politics.

We build custom voter guides, slate cards, and a “make a plan to vote” tool that can be used for ballot measures, 501c3 and 501c4 electoral work, and standalone campaigns.

Our CivicEngine tools are mobile-friendly and shareable, driving engagement, lead generation, and GOTV - voters using our guides can save their choices to pull up on their phones in the voting booth.

Started in 2015, BallotReady has received funding from the National Science Foundation, the Knight Foundation, and the University of Chicago. In 2016, BallotReady was live in 12 states covering over 15,000 candidates and had over 1 million visits to our site. In Fall 2018 we will expand to every candidate and referendum nationwide.
