    Project Vote Smart is a citizens’ organization dedicated to serving all Americans with accurate and unbiased information for electoral decision-making. It was inaugerated in 1992 by former US Presidents Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford, and other leaders. Its webpage offers information about all ballot-listed candidates for all federal and state office.


    The ACE Project
    An interesting site concerning itself with the “Administration and Cost of Elections”, including issues of fairness and regulatory approaches in various countries. They seem to be almost blind to the ways that third parties in the USA are harmed by campaign finance rules crafted for the problems characteristic of the larger parties, or the ways that third parties would be disenfranchised by various proposed rules, but this is nevertheless a useful resource, particularly for the international comparisons it makes.

    “Unofficial” B.A.N. Page
    At first, it looks like there’s not much here. But then you follow the “Charts” link, and click on one of the listed candidates, and you’ll get some truly wonderful nationwide maps of voting patterns.
    A site that covers news about minor parties.

    Third Party Central
    Collects lots of good information and links relating to various third parties into one convenient location. Nice set of writings on why one should vote third-party.

    Atlas of U.S. Presidential Elections
    A surprisingly complete listing of votes cast in Presidential elections, including numerous third-party candidates and nice maps of vote distribution by state and (on the individual state pages) by county.

    D.C.’s Political Report
    Very good presentation of candidate and party information, including virtually every known third-party group in the USA. Election results, candidate information, etc.

    Initiative For Texas
    A group trying to establish the right to Initiative and Referendum in Texas. Their work has intriguing parallels and overlaps with ballot access work. Every page at the site seems to have some music on it, which can get annoying after awhile, but otherwise it’s an interesting site.

    Center for Voting and Democracy
    Folks concerned with alternative voting systems, and related issues, from a moderately leftist perspective. Useful articles describing how better systems of voting and electing actually work.
