E.thePeople is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that is the nation’s leading provider of
interactive voter guide software. Every election year, e.thePeople software powers hundreds of in-depth
online voter guides for local, state, and national elections. E.thePeople software is used by an expanding
network of partners, including the League of Women Voters, AARP, and scores of respected local media
companies. E.thePeople is funded from licensing revenue from its proprietary software as well as grants
from individuals and foundations, including the Knight Foundation and the Gannett Foundation.
E.thePeople’s mission is to make it easier for everyone to be a great citizen.
E.thePeople prepares voters to make informed voting decisions in just minutes with an intuitive application
that guides voters step-by-step through their ballot. Voters enter their street address and are provided
with informative summaries about the candidates and ballot initiatives—from congressional to school board
elections—based upon where they live. Voters can study and compare candidate positions on key issues,
review referenda, mark their preferences, save their choices in a range of formats
(print, text message, etc.), and share their preferences through social media.
Our partners bring local knowledge about issues and races plus credibility within their communities.
Candidates have the opportunity to provide information in their own words. E.thePeople provides the
software, data management, training, and technical support so our partners can easily manage multiple
races, communicate with candidates, and offer personalized voting information to the public via mobile
and desktop platforms. More than 15 million people have visited our voter guides since 2004.
