The Project for an Informed Electorate’s mission is to empower citizens by fostering greater understanding of politics, policy, and government. We are dedicated to identifying, creating, and disseminating accurate, trustworthy, open, and non-partisan information. We do so by conducting academic research, organizing public events, and pursuing innovative means of achieving widespread civic knowledge.
