Voter Information Services (VIS) is a non-partisan, not-for-profit, member-supported organization founded in 1995. Although we publish information from sources with very diverse biases and agendas, VIS itself does not support or oppose any issue, politician, or special interest group. Read about our history.
Acting on our belief that a government accountable to the citizens is the best government, VIS helps interested citizens learn about the actions of our elected officials and the impact of those actions on our lives.
VIS provides on-line tools that help voters learn about the impact of our elected officials’ actions.
While we hope to, in the future, cover all U.S. elected officials at all levels of government, our current focus is the U.S. Congress. Our Congressional Report Cards help their users understand
- The impact of the laws enacted (or not enacted) by the U.S. Congress on our everyday lives.
- The role of each Congress member in the passage or defeat of the above laws.
We actively seek partnerships with other organizations and individuals whose goals are compatible with ours.
VIS is funded primarily through small user
fees and donations we collect from the users of the
information we publish. Donations to Voter Information Services, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization
(EIN 04-3259572), are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
