This is an election year, and each one of us needs to be well informed on the issues that matter most to our country and to our communities. It’s difficult to wade through all the messaging and manipulation that comes with election season, but don’t let this difficulty send you into the voting booth blind or keep you from voting altogether. Don’t forfeit the power you have to participate in your government and to shape the decisions that shape our lives in this country. Vote. But do it smart. Project Vote Smart can help.

Project Vote Smart is a powerful and easy-to-use resource that brings you millions of facts on over 40,000 politicians. Their online tools make what might otherwise be an overwhelming task quite doable—and actually kind of fun. Easily find critical information regarding where your politicians stand on the issues that matter most to you.

It’s been a while coming, but our resource page is growing with many valuable resources and links to help you take your service learning projects to the next level. We’re adding resources more quickly now than ever before. Currently you’ll find information across many categories including advocacy/policy, civic engagement, curriculum, service learning, voter education, and topical/social issues.

As with other areas of this site, we also welcome your input to help build it. If you know of a valuable resource link that you think should be added to our resource page, suggest it here → Recommend a Resource.
