Vote Smart (formerly called Project Vote Smart)https://votesmart.org/

Non-profit, non-partisan research organization that collects and distributes information on candidates for public office in the U.S. Tabs at the top provide information on just about everything.  Just have to enter a name.  The only problem is that when you first open it, there is a sound-track which is a little much.  Just turn the volume way down or mute your computer.  Limitations:  only has information for people in office, but goes to the State Level. 

 

Open Secretshttps://www.opensecrets.org/

This is mostly about $, and has information both on politicians and funders.  Take a look at this site to see what is most interesting. Going to the Congressional Races allows you to put in a state of candidate’s name.  Choosing NM gives a list of all races at the national level. Click on different tabs across to get additional information. Limitations:  doesn’t have data on State races.

 

Ballotpediahttps://ballotpedia.org

This has a lot of good information and is interesting to browse.  It is perhaps the most comprehensive in terms of races, and has a huge amount of information about incumbents, and historical information about the seat.  It has information about everything that will be on the ballot – from U.S. Legislature, to State Legislature, to executive offices.
