It's incredibly difficult to decide who to for in every race on the ballot. Most voters enter the voting booth prepared to vote for president and unprepared for everything else. As a result, voters guess, leave blanks, or stay home altogether.

Local elected officials make decisions that affect our lives every day - they monitor the quality of our drinking water, set funding for health clinics, and choose the leadership of our schools. It should not be this difficult to cast an informed vote.

BallotReady is a fantastic team that I have worked with for the last year. They have already tested out their website in the most recent Chicago election and are rapidly moving forward to a full roll-out for the 2016 Presidential election. The team is very receptive to feedback and highly motivated. They have accomplished more in the last year than most other start-up teams that I have worked with. They have significant experience that is relevant to this and substantial backing from many tremendous organizations, including my own - the Chicago Innovation Exchange.
