Support Ballotpedia, a Peerless Web Resource for Elections on Every Level

This OTYCD entry originally posted in November 2017.


Support Ballotpedia, a peerless web resource for elections on every level–local, state, and federal.


Launched in 2007 in Middleton, Wisconsin, Ballotpedia dubs itself “the encyclopedia of American politics” with good reason. It has a quarter of a million articles on candidates, races, and districts across the country. And it’s going to continue to grow. As its About page notes, there are 507,000 elected officials in America. Ballotpedia employs a staff of more than 60 writers and researchers. It is committed to neutrality.

The Women’s March was just the beginning.

Countless citizens, annoyed by Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns, gatheredĀ in cities across the country on April 15–the traditional deadline for filing income taxes.

Scientists, angered by Trump’s assault on facts, came togetherĀ in cities across the country on April 22–Earth Day.

Both marches received separate entries on OTYCD, and many more marches and protests are in the works. Click the link below to learn about upcoming marches and protests:

Shepard Fairey, the artist who created the iconic HOPE poster for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, created a new series of posters in time for the Women’s March. Download those three famous new poster images and striking poster designs by other artists from this link:
