VotingSmarter is a new educational app which matches voters with their ideal candidates based on issue preferences rather than immutable characteristics or party affiliation. The app was designed to easily educate voters, and to decrease the frequency of voters going on “blind-votes” at the ballot box, because they often end up feeling like they’ve been “catfished” by politicians after election day.
