README for WeVoteServer
This WeVoteServer repository contains a Python/Django-powered API endpoints server. We take in ballot data from Google Civic API, Ballotpedia, Vote Smart, MapLight, TheUnitedStates.io and the Voting Information Project. We then serve it up to voters, and let voters Support/Oppose and Like ballot items. We are also building tools to capture and share voter guide data.
You can see our current alpha version for a San Francisco ballot here: https://WeVote.US/
