Vote Finder

The Family Policy Institute of Washington has been working to protect marriage, life, religious freedom, and parental rights in Washington State for seven years.

Today might be our greatest moment.

There are no elections and no legislative debates.  But today we are launching the tool that could change all the elections and legislative debates to come.

Today we introduce FPIW’s Vote Finder.

 

Vote Finder gives every pro-family voter in Washington State the ability to do something that has never been possible before.

You can find out if someone has turned in their ballot…before the election is over.  If you knew that your conservative friends, children, or co-workers simply hadn’t gotten around to voting, wouldn’t you like to know so you can remind them before it’s too late?

Now you can.

Vote Finder is easy.  It’s so easy my mom can use it to create a personalized list of friends, family members, neighbors, coworkers, and church members.

Vote Finder provides you with two critical pieces of information.

First, we’ll tell you if they are a registered voter or not.  If they are not, Vote Finder and provide a shockingly easy way to get them registered if not.

Second, we will provide daily updates about whether or not they have turned their ballots in…before the election is over.

In fact, you can upload a list of everyone in your church at once. As long as you have first names, last names, and street addresses, within seconds we can tell you if they are registered and if they have turned in their ballots.

On the Sunday before the election, pastors can upload their church list, congratulate those who have already voted, and give a friendly reminder to those who haven’t.

How cool is that?

The leadership in the Washington State Senate changed over the last two years because of 78 votes in Vancouver.

Since 2008, 14 races have been decided by fewer than 1,000 votes.

In 2010, a state legislative race in Puyallup was decided by 37 votes.

Close elections are common and they often end up in the election of people with very different worldviews simply because lots of people who think like we do never got a friendly reminder to turn in their ballots.  There are no more excuses.

But there is a catch…

People have to use it.

If it’s just my mom and I using it…well, we know for sure that our family will vote.  But that may not be enough to create the kind of change we want.

Vote Finder will only be as powerful as the number of people using it.

So we need all of you to create an account and find 10, 15, or 30 friends who will vote the right way. Then make sure they do.  And if you find they aren’t registered because they moved recently…well by all means get them registered.

The “Invite Users” button in Vote Finder makes it simple to invite other people to do  their part as well.

Before you know it, tens of thousands of pro-family ballots will be turned in that otherwise would have found their way to a landfill. So do your part to save the planet and make sure your friends turn in their ballots.

What are you waiting for?  Sign up.

If we all do our part, this could be the best thing we’ve ever done.

    Without getting into a discussion of the validity of 501c3 restrictions, may church employees use votefinder while “on the clock?” Since it is a voter registration and get-out-the-vote effort and not campaigning for a specific candidate, it seems like the answer is YES.

      Nothing about Vote Finder will give any churches trouble. It doesn’t discuss campaigns or issues. It simply provides information about who is registered and who has turned in their ballot. So there is no reason it can’t be used at a church while on the clock.
