Timber the Wonder Dog says ... VOTE SMART!

We’re powered by the conviction that every vote countsOur goal is simple: to provide voters with convenient and trustworthy information that will empower them to vote.

We’re dedicated to the belief that we can. WE CAN elect qualified candidates. With qualified leadership, we can address the challenging issues confronting North Idaho: jobs, education, and growth.

We’re determined to make a difference. Our tasks are serious but we will keep a sense of humor. To help us, we have recruited Timber the wonder dog. She considers herself the best doggone political pundit going — but she doesn’t mind taking a break from serious stuff to play ball. We’ll use her as our inspiration to do the same during the coming elections.
