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.

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.

NASE Celebrates National Small Business Week

Friday, May 24, 2019

In recognition of National Small Business Week — a week dedicated to recognizing and honoring the outstanding entrepreneurs and small business owners located across all 50 states and U.S. territories — which was Sunday, May 5th through Saturday, May 11th, the National Association for the Self-Employed (NASE), the nation’s leading advocate and resource for the self-employed and micro-business community, “applauded the entrepreneurial spirit of our nation’s small businesses who help strengthen our nation’s economy every day.”

“Millions of small business owners from every single State and from every demographic you can think of contribute each and every day to providing a critical boost to the overall American economy,” said Keith Hall, President and CEO. “The main reason our economy is strong and prosperous is due to the millions of hard-working small business owners who have chosen self-employment, not only to support their own families, but also the families benefiting from the new jobs they create.

“Over 30 million self-employed and small business owners — from accountants to builders and bakers — operate throughout every corner of the country. These unique and creative entrepreneurs, including the budding independent entrepreneurs of the sharing economy, are ensuring our country and economy remain strong.”

In celebration of National Small Business Week and in partnership with AARP, NASE CEO and President, Keith Hall participated in a tele-town hall on the opportunities of being your own boss. Keith Hall was joined by the Jones Sisters, made famous on the Netflix show, Queer Eye!
