MapLight_Logo_Tagline_lgConcerned about money in politics?  Find out who is funding the candidates.

MapLight researches and compile data about the sources of campaign contributions in U.S. presidential, congressional, state, and local ballot and candidate elections.
It is a tool that shines a light on our money-dominated political system so citizens can be more informed about the potential financial influences that affect their representatives’ votes.

Voter’s Edge California is a joint project of MapLight and the League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (LWVCEF). This online voter guide is a comprehensive, nonpartisan online guide to elections covering federal, state, and local races in the state of California.
