The Voting Information Project (VIP) provides free tools that give voters easy access to voting information, such as where to vote and what’s on the ballot. A range of public and private sector entities have driven user traffic through these tools:
In the first half of 2017, more than 326,000 voters accessed either Get to the Polls or the Voting Information Tool to look up information for elections across the country. In addition, state and local governments and advocacy groups have placed the Voting Information Tool on their websites throughout 2017 to support voters looking for key information about primaries, runoffs, and local and municipal races.
VIP, an initiative of The Pew Charitable Trusts, is a collaboration with the states and Google to ensure that Americans have the official information they need to cast a ballot, including where to vote and what candidates and initiatives are on the ballot.
