Who works for BRVotes?

Candidate answers are copied directly to the website with no corrections for spelling and grammar.

BRVotes researches every candidate on the ballot in EBR city limits. 

We do surveys for as many elections as possible

We contact candidates multiple times using the information they provide to the Secretary of State’s office. We email, make calls, and USPS mail all of the candidates we cover.

YES. Anyone who is not running for office or staffing a candidates’ campaign can volunteer.
