Offer your users our popular ballot lookup feature!!
To Webmasters of sites providing election information, we encourage you to link to our site.
Link to Home Page
To link to our main page, simply link to http://www.smartvoter.org/ which will always find the next or most recent past election.
To link directly to our coverage for a specific election, link to http://www.smartvoter.org/yyyy/mm/dd/ -- for example, http://smartvoter.org/2012/06/05. Use this form of a link when you plan to archive your page for a given election and you want to link to our coverage of that election.
Link to County Page
If you would like to link directly to one of our county pages for the most current election, please do so. The format of the URL is: http://www.smartvoter.org/ss/cc/
where ss = state code (ca or ny or oh) and cc = 2 or 3 character county code.
Our system will ensure that your link takes you to the most current election -- so use this form if you want to be independent of a specific election.
If you plan to archive your page and want to be sure to go to county page for a specific election, link to http://www.smartvoter.org/yyyy/mm/dd/ss/cc/
