Even if you’re not one of the estimated 9% of the electorate who is undecided on the presidential race, you are probably one of the roughly 100% (we made that up, but it feels right) of people who are undecided on the other state and local races and ballot measures you could be struggling to decode on November 6... All of us could probably use a little help, and understanding the facts is more fun with friends, especially if you have a drink or two. So, we’ve built this toolkit to encourage more informed and confident voting this election.


America is lucky to have citizens like you.

We hope you enjoy your Who & What the F--- Are We Voting For party. Please play and vote responsibly.
