SEATTLE, Oct. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --LiveBallot.com, a free, nationwide eBalloting tool for voters, is now available to research the candidates and issues that will appear on a voter's specific ballot. Any voter in the country can now access a wealth of information and make informed decisions before they cast their ballot. LiveBallot.com is powered by Democracy Live, the nation's leading eBalloting provider, and offers unbiased, nonpartisan information that is individually tailored to each voter.
"Many voters feel like they don't know enough about the candidates to make informed decisions," said Bryan Finney, the President of Democracy Live. "LiveBallot.com allows voters to educate themselves before they go to the polls. Our tool gives voters a one stop shop to learn about candidates and issues they will vote on in an unbiased environment."
LiveBallot.com is the nation's first online Voter Information Guide. After a voter enters an address, the voter's specific ballot displays in a clickable, markable form. The voter can click to view biographical and background information about candidates, review fundraising reports and connect to campaigns through social media and YouTube videos. After voters mark their selections online, they can print their completed Voter Information Guide as an Election Day cheat sheet.
"LiveBallot.com takes the mystery out of voting and provides every voter with a free, interactive guide that they can use to educate themselves," said Finney.
