“Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote.” ActiVote is here to encourage you to get you, and your friends, out to the polls!
- Find out if you are what campaigns call a "super voter" and see all the elections you can vote in.

Ratings and Reviews
Really intuitive UI, and I love that I can compare candidates’ views to my own. Only thing: I wish I could delete certain contacts after uploading. I have a lot of family and friends outside of the US, so I wish I could eliminate that clutter just focus on the ones that I can truly reach out to and get them to vote!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for leaving a review. You can delete contacts by either long-pressing on the contact (available for the first version) or swiping/flicking the contact card left on the contact detail screen. That should take care of removing any contacts that you do not want to see in the list.
Beware Writer Bias
The core concept is great. Better knowledge, and an ability to record your personal feelings on candidates over time is a great way to interweave tech and electoral politics.
On the other side of what the app does- namely the “think”/“political matrix functions, BEWARE 2 things: 1- these are ball park assessments based on, 2- poorly/biased written responses. There is a clear left/liberal bias in the framing of answer choices that can/will make you feel a particular way about particular responses, and are disingenuous (at best) about the way in which positions/arguments from the right are made or validated.
There needs to be a comment section for questions, or at least a way to supply your own response rather than defaulting to “None of the above” when then 5pt Likert Scale of options doesn’t closely enough provide you with a choice.
Just what our democracy needs!
I love the matrix and the Ranked Choice Voting aspects! Super helpful to know which candidates I align with after answering the policy questions and being able to choose my top candidates from there! The RCV part is a super cool way to see real time polling - this app is exactly what our country needs right now! Amazing!!!
