2020

While we were catching our breath from the 2018 midterms, a crop of candidates were already preparing for 2020 - there are already 615 presidential candidates! The most notable candidates for President are listed here, simply because we don’t have the ability to comprehensibly list every candidate. However, if you think there’s a notable candidate that we’re missing, please let us know!

We’ll continue to update this website as candidates pop up, but first a couple notes:

  • We are a bipartisan group. We’re not here to sway you to vote for one candidate or party over another. Instead, we’re going to help you find the information you need about all candidates running, and let you take it from there. Nothing here should be seen as an endorsement - we just don’t do that.

  • We’re also not going to post anyone here until they have announced either an exploratory committee or an official campaign.

  • If you need a little extra help, or reminder, on the terminology, most words can be clicked on for a quick definition. Or, if you’d like, we’ve got a whole glossary for you to check out.

  • Finally - don’t forget to check back often! We’ll continue to update our candidate list, eventually spreading out beyond the presidential race and including state races as well. We’ll also add state-by-state voting guidelines, and some explainer videos along the way.
