Vote Smart Opens National “Facts Matter” Research Center

April 6, 2017 by pegjohnston

Des Moines, April 6, 2017 -- Seventeen universities competed and Drake University, located in the center of the nation and in a state that is ground zero every Presidential Election, was selected by Vote Smart for its new Facts Matter Research Center.
 
The center is being designed to grow an unparalleled database of public records on over 100,000 past, present and future politicians, and to forge new interactive systems for handheld devices that defend each citizen’s access to the facts on any issue and on any politician of interest.
 
Vote Smart is hosting an opening celebration on April 10th from 5 pm - 7 pm in their new Des Moines office to commemorate a new partnership with Drake, an outstanding civics learning institution that is providing the offices needed to house 50 of its interns each semester to defend every citizen’s right to know.
