About Vote Compass

Vote Compass is an interactive electoral literacy application developed by a group of political scientists. Its aim is to stimulate voter engagement in elections and encourage discussion on public policy. Vote Compass results are not intended and should not be interpreted as voting advice, nor as a prediction as to which party or candidate a given user intends to vote for. It is rather an entry point into a discussion of party positions on a suite of issues relevant in a given election campaign. For information visit
