To get started, you will be presented with a select number of key topics relevant to a political race. Each topic will contain a question to help you determine your views. iElectTM offers complete flexibility in the selection process, however, the more questions you answer, the better the accuracy in determining which candidate(s) share your views.
iElectTM uses a proprietary algorithm to match your views with those of valid candidates associated with various political parties. You can also compare your answers with up to 2 candidates at the same time in an easy-to-view format.
Still unsure on who to vote for? Take the opportunity to learn about each candidate and the values they stand for. iElectTM includes quick links to additional source material on candidates such as access to their campaign website, Facebook page, Twitter feed and Wikipedia profile.
Contribute to iShapePolicy's own real-time voting poll. You do not have to vote for your highest matched candidate – the iElectTM match algorithm is simply a tool designed to help you find your ideal candidate. If you agree or disagree with your highest match, tell us by picking the candidate who really has your vote!
