Ballotpedia regularly tests our sample ballot's accuracy by looking up addresses on both it and the official sample ballot and comparing the lookup results from both tools. We strive for our sample ballot tool to be 100% accurate. This means that, for offices within our coverage scope, a person's sample ballot results should include every election that will appear on their actual ballot. It should also include every candidate running in those elections, except write-ins. Finally, it should not contain errors such as misspelled names, inaccurate incumbency labels, or incorrect political party affiliations.

If you are a user of our Sample Ballot, and you are experiencing problems using it or notice any accuracy issue of any kind at all, it would be a huge help to our future readers and users if you would send us a note telling us about the problem. Send the note to:
