LOS ANGELES, Sept. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ask most Americans of voting age, from Baby Boomers, Generation Xers and Millennials, "Who's running for Congress in your voting district?" and most likely, you'll get a lot of shrugs and blank stares.
That's because most Americans don't even know who their current Congressperson is, let alone which Congressional District number they live in, or which Candidates are even running for Congress in this most important Presidential and Congressional Election in November.
For those Voters who do care about grid-lock in Washington and electing worthy Candidates to Congress (who share their values, principles and ability to work with the other side of the aisle to get laws passed), there is a new online and mobile voting service: ClickVote.com, whose 2016 Candidate Information service can help patriotic and concerned Voters of all ages become the informed electorate envisioned by America's Founding Fathers.
ClickVote.com's up-to-date database of 435 Congressional Districts makes it easy for today's online and mobile Internet-connected Voters to see who's running for Congress in their zip codes and learn which Candidate is worthy of their votes by comparing the different Republican, Democrat and Independent Party Candidates based on the content of their campaign websites and social-media.
ClickVote.com directly connects Voters to the official Election Campaign websites, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram webpages of the Candidates through the ClickVote.com platform.
Enter your Zip Code and the ClickVote.com election search engine displays a map of your Congressional District, lists your current Congressperson and Senators, and showcases the names, pictures and Tweets of Candidates competing for your vote November 8th.
ClickVote menus link to each Candidate's official campaign bio, news, videos, endorsements, positions on the issues and other voter-centric info – which content can help Voters make informed voting decisions about which Candidate deserves, and is worthy of, your vote.
According to Founding Father Thomas Jefferson and President John F. Kennedy, the real enemy of Democracy is voter ignorance and voter apathy.
Jefferson and Kennedy warned about the menace to society of the uninformed voter. But, they also agreed on the solution to the problem: voter-education:
- "If we think the people are not enlightened enough to exercise control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education." — Thomas Jefferson
- "The educated citizen...knows that only an educated and informed people will be a free people, that the ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all."

This is why ClickVote.com was created and launched in 2014 by EOR Technology Developer Larry Shultz: to help Voters of all ages become JFK's "educated citizens" and the "informed electorate" that American democracy needs, especially today.
