Unless you live under a rock, odds are you have a strong opinion on HB2 by now. But are you clear on exactly how we got here and how your stance should inform your future voting behavior?

Frustrated with how tedious it is to gather all the information necessary to cast an informed ballot, Andrew Jenkins decided to create a resource to make it easier. “I got tired of not knowing who exactly was involved. I got tired of not knowing who my Senators were. I got tired of Googling candidates to see who I want to vote for while standing in line for local elections. So I decided to do something about it,” he said last night in a Facebook post.

His project is called Vote Smarter NC and the first iteration of it is a detailed look at Who voted for HB2.

WhoVotedForHB2.com shows you how each senator voted on the controversial bill along with photos, district maps and a direct link to all of their contact information. It also provides a downloadable PDF from the Second Extra Session on March 23, 2016.

Jenkins, Director of Online Marketing at Direct Digital and the Founder of HeartMeter.org, says it’s not about which side you’re on on this issue. It’s about smarter voting.

Regardless of how you feel about HB2 it’s hard to deny this is a pivotal moment in our state’s history,” he said in his Facebook post announcing the #votesmarterNC project. “I just want us all to be as educated as possible.”

Is this information impossible to find without this site? Of course not.

But from the looks of it, the ‘Who Voted for HB2?’ project is just step one in a much larger #votesmarterNC campaign to create a valuable centralized resource that breaks down major issues impacting local elections. And that could be big.
