Thank you very much for a job well done." --Humboldt

"Very much appreciated the "smart voter" features that took me directly to candidates & issues for MY district. What a fantastic time-saver! The links to newspaper articles, speeches, etc. were also greatly appreciated. It was wonderful to go directly to the further detailed information I wanted instead of spending hours scanning newspapers & rummaging thru mountains of irrelevant data. I have noted this website for future use... THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR PROVIDING THIS VALUABLE SERVICE!!" --Hamilton Co., OH

"WOW! Thank you VERY much! An OUTSTANDING service from one of the great organizations left."

From Candidates...

"I haven't a single suggestion! Just having this available is beyond anything I would have expected (I am a U.S. Senatorial candidate)!" --Arizona

"As a school board candidate, I am very grateful to the League of Women voters for this opportunity to reach voters. Democracy only works where voters are informed about issues and candidates. ... As a qualified candidate without a war chest bankrolled by rich and powerful special interests, I am especially appreciative of this opportunity to spread the word without the gravy." --Orange
