Lodestone Voting was developed in response to one of the most difficult challenges facing voters today. Namely, after tens of millions of dollars spent in advertising in each state for each election cycle, the average person knows little, if anything, about the candidates running for office.
The easy races are the big ones – President, Governor, US Senator, Congress…but after them it becomes very difficult to know much about anyone running for office.
Lodestone cuts through all the noise, and gets right to the heart of the matter, and answers the question, “Who should I vote for?” in each election, for each office, regardless of personality or issues at stake. Lodestone is the first generation in smart voting, where intelligence is crowd sourced, and an accurate sample ballot is created for each individual voter, perfectly tailored to their own unique political beliefs and principals.
Lodestone Helps Campaign Volunteers
If you are interested in politics and want to help your candidate get elected Lodestone provides a solution. The problem has always been that if you are not actually working on a campaign, there is not much you can do to make a tangible difference in the outcome of an election.
That all changes with Lodestone, because, as a Lodestone Voter, you can endorse candidates, and your endorsements will be used to recommend candidates to other like-minded voters.
Lodestone Helps Candidates
If you have ever been a candidate for public office, you know that the first big challenge is to increase your name identification. Increasing your name ID is the first challenge, while the second is educating likely voters on what you believe and why you think you would be a better representative than your opponent.
Meanwhile, how are you doing? Are you increasing your name ID and gaining ground? There is no way to tell, unless you can afford tracking polling, which only a few campaigns are able to do.
Lodestone changes all of this, by adding a two-pronged tool to your arsenal. All you need to do is to encourage your supporters to sign on, and they can do the rest with their endorsements. Additionally, you will be to see how you are doing, in real-time, with Lodestone’s tracking polling functionality.
Lodestone is Non-Partisan
Lodestone was developed intentionally to be non-partisan – namely, it is not Republican or Democrat, Green or Constitutional, rather, it is available to anyone of any political persuasion and will create accurate sample ballots based on the beliefs of the Voter.
