The Single Source of Truth for Elected Officeholders, Offices, and Candidates.
Let's TalkExplore
There are over 500,000 elected offices in the US. Unfortunately, more than 70% of all races go uncontested.

Groups dedicated to recruiting, training, and supporting candidates are doing their best to change this, but they are often under-resourced, forced to rely on incomplete datasets, overburdened by data entry, and have to view data in fragmented formats.

In 2020:

16,004 elected offices didn’t have anyone on the ballot


25 Of the 1125 State Senator seats went uncontested


1 elected dogcatcher in the country (in Duxbury, VT as of 2018)
