"Voting Advice Applications (VAAs) are non-partisan, independent platforms designed to inform and assist citizens during electoral campaigns. They help to navigate the policy proposals of competing political parties and candidates, with the goal of finding the best fit between an individual’s policy preferences and their options at the ballot box." 

Thanks to our Voting Advice Applications team featuring Frederico Ferreira da Silva, Andres Reiljan, Lorenzo Cicchi, Alexander H. Trechsel and Diego Garzia, this tool has successfully reached more than a million users in 2019 for the European elections.
