Voting Information Tool

The Voting Information Tool (VIT) below is an easy to use voting information tool that offers official voting information–such as polling place and ballot information–to anyone, using just a residential address.

On the move...?

This short messaging service (SMS) tool provides voters with election information via text message. By texting “VOTE” or “VOTO” to GOVOTE (468-683), voters can find polling places, contact information for local election officials, and registration URLs. The app is available in multiple languages.

By sending a text message to Pew (The Pew Charitable Trusts), you consent to receive voting information via one or more text messages from an automated system.  This is a free service, but standard text message rates may apply.  You may revoke consent by contacting Pew, including by texting STOP.

Just for Fun

Here are some great tools built and managed by the Sunlight Foundation that you may find interesting.

Capitol Words explores the most popular words and phrases used by legislators in the U.S. Congress. Search the data from 1996 to today by state, date or politician.

Influence Explorer connects the dots of political contributions on the federal and state level allowing you to track influence by lawmaker, company or prominent individual.

Open States allows anyone to discover more about lawmaking in their state. With Open States, you can track state bills, get campaign and contact information for legislators and follow all the action across 50 states, D.C. and Puerto Rico.

Party Time documents the political fundraising circuit. From the early morning hours until late at night, there are opportunities for members of Congress, presidential and congressional candidates to meet with supporters behind closed doors, press them for money and party. Breakfasts, luncheons, barbecues, golfing outings, receptions, concerts, basketball, baseball, football—the social whirl is endless.

Political Ad Sleuth is an opportunity for local volunteers to help us make a national, online database of TV stations’ public ad files. This paperwork, which every broadcaster keeps but doesn’t post online, contains important information about who is buying airtime for political ads.

The Latest...

Here's a sample of some of the things we've been working on.


NASE Founding Member of New  Small Business Coalition

Monday, April 16, 2018
NASE is proud to announce that we have joined the Small Business Roundtable. NASE has joined forces with the nation’s leading small business and entrepreneurship organizations to form the Small Business Roundtable (SBR), a coalition dedicated to advancing policy, securing access, and promoting inclusion to benefit the 30 million small businesses at the heart of the American economy.

Like our fellow members of SBR, we are committed to improving the entrepreneurial environment. We are delighted to work alongside the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council, National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), National Small Business Association (NSBA), the U.S. Black Chambers, Inc. (USBC), and the Asian/Pacific Islander American Chamber of Commerce and Entrepreneurship (National ACE).

Keith Hall, President & CEO of NASE said: “While ‘small business’ makes for great rhetoric, its advocates rarely are included in major policy decisions. The leading goal of SBR is to ensure a proverbial seat at the table. We must guarantee that our voice—the collective interests of our members—is not only heard, but sought after. We look forward to working not only with traditional partners, but reaching out to new allies across the political and economic spectrum.”

The coalition was established to give the small business associations a more cohesive voice on public policy. It will allow us a place to share information and increase the influence of our organization.

Additionally, it will become a one stop shop as a place to share information for the small business and entrepreneurship community.
