Anyone can sign up on Lodestone and immediately gain access to their personalized sample ballot.
You will be asked to complete a short and simple questionnaire about your beliefs and principals. Based on your answers you will be matched with other like-minded Voters.
Voters can endorse or oppose Candidates and post comments. You can filter, sort, and search to find any Candidate running in your home state.
Based on matching and endorsements, a unique and accurate Sample Ballot is created for you recommending the Candidates you should vote for, based on your own beliefs, even if you’ve never heard of the person running for office. And, you can easily “drill down” to see the rationale behind the recommendations as well as do your own research on Candidates.
A major benefit to Candidates, political parties, media, and even lobbyists is that they can receive inexpensive real-time tracking polls that show how good (or bad) they are doing against their opponents. Disclaimer: No personal identifying information is provided.
