Ballotpedia, the encyclopedia of American politics, is here to help you prepare for the 2020 federal, state, and local elections. Ballotpedia sources candidate information from each of the 50 states to provide you with an example of your 2020 U.S. primary and general election ballots. Use this sample ballot mobile app to preview your ballot and show up to the polls prepared.
Note: This is NOT an official ballot and you CANNOT vote using this app. Ballotpedia is not a government agency, but a nonprofit that collects and organizes election information from official federal and state election sources.
Ballotpedia is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization on a mission to solve the ballot information problem. There are over 500,000 elected officials in the United States, and we hope to one day provide information on them all. This app includes factual information on elections and candidates you will find on the ballot in all federal and state-level races, plus local races on the ballot in the 100 largest cities.
Features of this app include:
- Preview your ballot
- Enter your address and see all the elections we are covering in your districts.
- Multiple election dates
- If there are upcoming primary, special, and general elections for your address, youll pick the one you want to get information on.
- Local elections
- We cover every election taking place within the 100 largest cities. If you are one of the 62 million within this scope, youll get a look at every race on the ballot. If not, well still deliver the state and federal information to you, plus give you tips on how to find more information on your own local races.
- Dive as deep as you want
- Were happy to give you the name of each candidate on the ballot, but that alone doesnt offer much help when it comes time to choose which candidate you feel best represents you. The app also features candidates responses to questions designed to help you get to know the real person, not just their talking points. And of course, their full Ballotpedia profile is always one click away.
