Create Your Own Guide: Set up a version of Voter’s Edge Illinois for your organization

An easy way for organizations to partner with Voter’s Edge Illinois is to request a subdomain. A subdomain is a complete and co-branded version of the voter guide that can be customized with a unique URL, title, color scheme, and your organization’s logo. If you would like to request a subdomain for your website, please ‘Contact Us’ for more information.

Note: Subdomains cannot be used by candidates, political parties, or PACs, nor by any organization to attempt to influence the outcome of an election or to engage in other prohibited political activities as described in IRS code 26 USC 501(c)(3).

Share a custom link.

You can bypass the Voter’s Edge Illinois homepage entirely by entering a street address directly into a URL that will take you right to the results. Use the structure described below to generate a URL that will take you to the results for any street address or zip code.

This is a great feature for organizations that do bulk mailings to larger groups of people for whom they have addresses. The tool allows you to send your subscribers a customized link based on their street address.

Address Lookup
Voter’s Edge Illinois has created an Excel spreadsheet to make this process easier and to allow you to quickly generate large numbers of unique, address-specific URLs. To use this spreadsheet, follow these instructions:

  1. Select the “IL” tab at the bottom of the Excel spreadsheet.
  2. Enter an address in the first four columns:
    a. Example address: 301 S 2nd Street, Springfield, IL 62707
    b. Street_Number: This is number of the house or building (301 from the example above)
    c. Street_1: This is the name of the street (S 2nd from the example above)
    d. Street_2: This is the type of street (Street from the example above)
    • Note: You may enter this either as “St”, “ST.” or “Street” and it will work.
      e. Zip: This is the zip code (62707 from the example above)
  3. Click the link that appears in the column labeled URL, or copy and paste it.

Zip Code Lookup
The URL structure for a zip code-only search is the same as for an address search, but the address information is left blank.

You can also use the Excel spreadsheet to generate a URL for a zip code-only ballot search. Simply follow the same instructions as above, but leave the first three fields blank (i.e., only fill in the Zip field).
