About

campaign logo

Leadership Austin and Austin Tech Alliance partnered in 2018 to launch informed.vote – a website to help Central Texans cast an informed vote at the ballot box.


PROBLEM

Far too many Central Texans do not know where candidates for elected office stand on issues important to them. The most robust ways to find out – candidate questionnaires from community organizations – are not easy to find unless a voter already knows about a particular community group or does significant research into the causes and candidates they care about.


SOLUTION

informed.vote will allow users to filter community questions by district, candidate, cause, or ZIP Code. Users will be able to search all questions posed by community groups and get answers direct from the candidates – all in one place.


BENEFITS

For residents:

Providing a single resource to get educated about candidates running for local office and their positions on community issues


For community organizations:

Creating access to a wider audience, assisting with member recruitment, and spreading their messages about issues they focus on


For candidates:

Communicating to a broader group of Central Texans about their positions on issues


NEXT STEPS

We are seeking commitments from the local Austin community organizations, government, and members to help continue to fund the upkeep of informed.vote. Making a donation of $50 or more will help ensure we keep our community informed!
