California Online Voter Guide 2000 Debuts on the Net

Nonpartisan web site serves as election portal


Sacramento -- Today the California Voter Foundation launched the new California Online Voter Guide, a nonpartisan web site to help voters prepare for the March 7, 2000 Primary Election. The guide is available online at:

http://www.calvoter.org

"The California Online Voter Guide is a trustworthy portal through which voters can explore the rich and growing election resources the Internet now offers, said Kim Alexander, President of the California Voter Foundation and co-creater of the guide. "People are busy. And they're confused about elections. It's no surprise, with so many choices to make, she added, noting that 20 state propositions will appear on California's March ballot. "Thanks to the Internet, voters can finally make informed decisions. There is a lot of great information online, and CVF's guide helps voters find it.

The California Online Voter Guide is a nonpartisan clearinghouse of election information and web site links produced by the nonprofit organization for every statewide election since 1994. Now in its sixth edition, the 2000 voter guide serves up information on 174 California contests, including the state propositions, the Presidential election, congressional races and state legislative contests. Within the guide voters will find hundreds of links to official campaign web sites, phone numbers for campaign offices, and campaign contribution information to help voters follow the money.

"CVF's online guide pulls together a wide assortment of information and and puts it all in one place that's accessible to voters 24 hours a day, said Saskia Mills, CVF's Managing Director and co-creator of the guide. "Voters can rely on our guide to help them sort through their ballot choices and make sense of this year's election.

CVF's voter guide is easy to use and navigate, with light graphics and a clean design. The guide is free to users, free of advertisements, and funded by donations from foundations and members. CVF's guide will be frequently updated throughout the 2000 election season, with new features to be added soon, such as lists of the Top Ten contributors for and against each state proposition, and an animated song about the propositions.

The California Voter Foundation is a nonprofit, nonpartisan 501(c)3 organization started in 1994 to advance new technologies to improve democracy. CVF's Election 2000 projects are supported with grants from the Hewlett Foundation, the Gerbode Foundation, and the Carnegie Corporation of New York, and contributions from members.
