FREEDOM, N.H., Aug. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The NH Voter Guide smartphone app is back just in time for the 2016 New Hampshire state primary and general election. This free, easy-to-use resource provides clear, unbiased information about every major candidate seeking state office in the New Hampshire state primary election on September 13th, as well as the general election on November 8th.
In addition to featuring candidates for the New Hampshire gubernatorial, US Senate and US Congressional races, the NH Voter Guide 2016 also profiles the Executive Council races as well as every one of our 800+ candidates vying for seats in the NH House and Senate. The NH Voter Guide 2016 mobile app is free and available now forAndroid and iOS mobile devices.
The app addresses a major challenge facing all NH voters—that of simply knowing basic information about those candidates who do not receive widespread media coverage.
"With today's busy lifestyle, voters need easy access to candidate information," stated Sharon Ponchak, project leader for the LFDA NH Voter Guide 2016. "Our new app is an updated and improved version from 2014. Users can access information and review a candidate's background, position on key NH issues, and more anywhere on their smartphone. Instead of having to find information about the candidates from different websites and publications, we've done all the work and present the information in this streamlined application."
The 2016 app is an updated rendition from the 2014 version, which received critical acclaim and was a first-of-its-kind mobile application enabling users to learn about the candidates and where they stand on key issues.
The free app was created and launched by Citizens Count, NH's Live Free or Die Alliance (LFDA) with the goal of making citizen engagement easier. It provides our voters with the vital information they need to cast an informed ballot. The LFDA is a strictly nonpartisan organization that takes no sides on issues, candidates, or elected officials, which means all the information included in the NH Voter Guide 2016 app is unbiased and presented without a political agenda.
The NH Voter Guide 2016 app includes features that provide citizens with the quickest, most effective way possible to:
- Find out what NH House, Senate or Executive Council district you live in and who is running for office.
- See photos of the candidates and review their education, experience, and background information.
- See where candidates stand on 9 major issues.
The NH Voter Guide 2016 is available for both Android and iPhone devices (LFDA.org/voterguide). Be an informed voter. Download the NH Voter Guide 2016 today or visit LFDA.org for expanded voter resources.
