E.thePeople is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that is the nation’s leading provider of interactive voter guide software. Every election year, e.thePeople software powers hundreds of in-depth online voter guides for local, state, and national elections. E.thePeople software is used by an expanding network of partners, including the League of Women Voters, AARP, and scores of respected local media companies. E.thePeople is funded from licensing revenue from its proprietary software as well as grants from individuals and foundations, including the Knight Foundation and the Gannett Foundation.

E.thePeople’s mission is to make it easier for everyone to be a great citizen. E.thePeople prepares voters to make informed voting decisions in just minutes with an intuitive application that guides voters step-by-step through their ballot. Voters enter their street address and are provided with informative summaries about the candidates and ballot initiatives—from congressional to school board  elections—based upon where they live. Voters can study and compare candidate positions on key issues, review referenda, mark their preferences, save their choices in a range of formats (print, text message, etc.), and share their preferences through social media.

Our partners bring local knowledge about issues and races plus credibility within their communities. Candidates have the opportunity to provide information in their own words. E.thePeople provides the software, data management, training, and technical support so our partners can easily manage multiple races, communicate with candidates, and offer personalized voting information to the public via mobile and desktop platforms. More than 15 million people have visited our voter guides since 2004.

The League of Women Voters of Minnesota and North Dakota crafted the questions sent to the candidates in the Summer of 2020. They reached out to candidates based on contact information in their public candidate filings. Candidates with email addresses were invited and reminded with emails. Candidates with only mailing addresses were sent a letter. Candidates with phone numbers received a phone call as well.

Candidate responses are published as they responded and have not been edited, except when responses were longer than the given character limit. In those cases, the responses are truncated.

Vote411 is brought to you by the League of Women Voters Education Fund and League of Women Voters of Minnesota Education Fund. The League of Women Voters does not support or oppose any political party or candidate for office.
