Who We Are
We are an unbiased, apolitical voter resource. We help you find your #PoliticalMatch with our #CandidateMatchmaker – a mix of Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, and politics.
Together we can change how you find political candidates and how they find you; and Ultimately, we can change the world.
We will tell you who we voted for and how we mitigate our own bias so as not to affect your choices, unlike any other data source out there. Join us!
Stop getting catfished by your candidate or setup by your friends, your family, your party, or your news bubble.
No more blind votes! No more election-night stands!
Matchmaker 1.0: Launched in early 2020. Our team has turned 40 hours of boring research into 4 minutes of Fair, Fast, & Fun politics with the familiar feel of a dating app. It's like #Hinge4Politics (but please don't delete us). Find your #PoliticalMatch!
Matchmaker 2.0: Launched in July 2020 as part of our VotingSmarter iOS app (Try our iOS app HERE), Matchmaker 2.0 is the same great dating app to find your candidate soulmates but with way more functionality.
Coming soon (depending on fundraising):
Money Matrix: Our campaign finance visualization tool.
Candidate Snapshot: A live feed of any candidate's entire social media presence.
Tradeoff Visualizer: Imagine being in charge of everything and seeing how your policy choices could impact the country.
Money Primary: Think kickstarter, but for campaigns.
And... we are developing a way for you to vote EVERYDAY...just wait...you'll see!
We are a civic-tech nonprofit startup. We have over 40 people all working unpaid out of passion. We rely entirely on you donations. If you can, please donate through our GiveSum page. Every dollar we raise helps three more voters gain access to the #CandidateMatchmaker at our current cost structure, and provides us with the capital to build additional engaging tools.
If we can raise enough money we can add candidates for Governor, Senate, House and beyond in YOUR state before the election in November.
If you can't donate, please share our #CandidateMatchmaker with everyone you know and follow and share us on your social media. @VotingSmarter #NoBlindVotes
