How It Works
VoteGuide is an easy-to-use platform that lets you securely communicate with your elected official, or—if you’re that official—your constituents. Start a petition, create a poll, or just speak your mind to any one of your local, state, and federal representatives. Here’s how it works:
Keep tabs on your communications
When you sign up to VoteGuide, we’ll set you up with your own personal toolbar. Here, you can check on the status of a poll or petition and review your messages through "My Actions," check for "Broadcasts" from your representatives, easily navigate to your elected officials' profiles under "My Officials," and manage account settings with "My Account."
Find your representatives
Enter your address in the search bar above or simply click the geolocate icon to instantly see a list of representatives--from your local town hall all the way to the White House. You can also search for an official by name and we’ll send you straight to his/her profile page, where you can view contact information, send a direct message, or participate in a poll or petition.
Rally support with polls and petitions
Take matters into your own hands by creating a poll or petition on any subject that’s important to you. You can create and participate in polls and petitions found on a location page, so to get started just use the search bar to find the person or locality you’re targeting. After you’ve created your poll or petition, email the link or share it on social networks to get others involved. In addition to simply signing a petition or voting in a poll, you also have the ability to discuss the topic at hand through the comments section at the bottom of every poll/petition. Once you’ve reached the response goal, we’ll send your petition or poll to the people in charge.

Manage Your Public Profile Page
You can sign up to manage your public profile and take advantage of all of VoteGuide’s unique features, including sending broadcasts to your constituents, responding to polls and petitions, and updating your public contact information. Here’s how to get started:
- Locate your profile by entering your name or the city and state where your office is located into the search bar on the home page.
- Once you’ve located your profile, click the "Manage this page" link at the bottom of the page and follow further instructions.
If you don't see your position listed, we don't have your office in the system yet. We're working continually to fill out all federal, state, and local government positions.
