Partner Resources for the 2024 Election

Elections, presidential cycles particularly, are pivotal periods for the civics community. The June 27 debate between incumbent President Joe Biden (D) and former President Donald Trump (R) marks a significant milestone in the campaign for President of the United States. The outcomes of not just the presidential contest but also control of Congress, state legislatures, and several governors’ mansions have major implications for our work to strengthen federal and state K–12 civic education policies.

As we head toward Election Day, we’ve compiled, categorized, and detailed the following resources from our CivXNow Coalition partners:

  • Personalized Voter Engagement: ActiVote is an interactive platform designed to engage citizens in the democratic process by providing tools for voter education and participation. It helps users personalize voting information based on their preferences and location, track election dates, and understand the impact of their votes.
  • Historical Polling Data: Roper Center’s Campaign Weathervane compiles and analyzes historical polling data from past U.S. presidential elections. This website provides insights into public opinion trends and the evolution of campaign strategies, serving as a valuable resource for researchers and political enthusiasts.
  • Comprehensive Voter Information: VOTE411, created by the League of Women Voters Education Fund, is a comprehensive voter information platform. It offers personalized voting details, including what’s on your ballot, voter registration information, polling locations, and election deadlines. The website also features resources for first-time voters and checklists to ensure a smooth voting experience.
  • Simplifying the Voting Process: Vote.org is an online platform dedicated to simplifying the voting process and increasing voter turnout. It offers a range of tools including voter registration, checking registration status, requesting absentee ballots, and finding polling places. The site also provides election reminders and voter ID information, aiming to make the voting process accessible and straightforward for all eligible voters.
  • Detailed Candidate Information: Vote Smart provides detailed information on candidates, including biographies, voting records, issue positions, ratings, speeches, and funding.
