Getting Acquainted With What’s On Your Ballot In Illinois

In just one week people across the nation will cast their votes for everything from President of the United States to county officials. 

While candidates like Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are well known, most voters are unaware of the decisions they will make on a local level. Alex Niemczewski and Aviva Rosman hope to change that with their online voter guide, Ballot Ready. The interactive site allows voters to enter their address and see what their personalized ballot will look like. Candidate stances, referendum information, news, and endorsements, are all provided in an effort to create a better-informed electorate. 

Morning Shift talks with Niemczewski and Rosman about their site and what will be on Illinois ballots on Election Day.
