What’s on the Ballot
Chronicling the Country’s Fragmented Elections
There are thousands of public officials, elected on vastly varying schedules, with decisive roles in policy-making.
Our cheat sheets and databases offer readers a collection of resources that clarify who has the power to do what, and how they come to be in power in the first place. Created in 2018 by Daniel Nichanian, What’s on the Ballot joined Bolts in 2022.
