Voterly uses special interest group ratings to determine a politician's stance on a political or social issue. Special interest groups release ratings of politicians to convey whether that politician is in favor of their cause. For example, a politician who actively supports gun rights will receive a high rating from a pro-gun interest group. That same politician would be rated low by a gun control interest group. This collection of ratings informs where we place a politician on the spectrum of the issue.
