This proposed voter community is for funding websites that help retail investors in all American investments, including stocks, mutual funds, bank accounts, money market funds etc. Help can include proxy voting advice, proxy voting infrastructure, investor education etc.

This Votermedia ballot is not currently funded. It is displayed as a demo for if and when there is funding. Without funding there may be few votes, which makes the rankings less meaningful.

We welcome comments, corrections, questions, suggested blogs to add etc -- please email admin[at]votermedia.org.
