- Project Vote Smart, a non-profit organization, has made it their mission to spotlight every candidate going into an election. They have put together a full-time research staff made-up of volunteers. Together, they have dug and compiled extensive biographies of every player on the field. If you want to know how a candidate voted on past issues, their positions, public statements, campaign finances, this organization provides that information. The next time you go to the voting booth you can vote confidently and vote smart!
OOIDA represents all professional truckers from company drivers and owner-operators to retired truckers and spouse members. Although the operations of our members may vary, the bottom line does not. We must all stand together to make the industry a better place for current and future generations of truckers.
