Problems and Purpose

To many people, the only form of political participation available is on election day. The ability to access voter information services is imperative to ensuring the minimum amount of civic participation in a democratic system. Voter information ensures citizens known where and when to vote as well as who they can vote for. Despite being fundamental to the actualization of one's enfranchisement, voter information is not always supplied by governments and is often coordinated through non-governmental or non-partisan organizations.
