Ballotpedia is the digital encyclopedia of American politics and elections. Our goal is to inform people about politics by providing accurate and objective information about politics at all levels of government. We are firmly committed to neutrality in our content; here's why.
As a nonprofit, our mission is to educate. We're here for you when:
You're considering a run for office.
You're making decisions about how you'll vote in an election.
You need the latest political news and analysis from a reliable, nonpartisan source.
Ballotpedia's articles are 100 percent written by our professional staff of more than 50 writers and researchers. Although we have an office in Middleton, Wisconsin, the majority of our staff work from home offices across the United States. Geoff Pallay serves as the Editor-in-Chief of Ballotpedia.
At RealClearPolitics (RCP) we’re dedicated to providing our readers with better, more insightful analysis of the most important news and policy issues of the day. This analysis will be critical in the year ahead as the new administration charges ahead with new policy and legislative initiatives. RCP’s daily editorial curation and original reporting present balanced, non-partisan analysis that empowers our readers to stay informed.
