Finding credible candidate information
Elections present voters with important choices. Whether it’s a local race that will affect your community or a national race that could change the direction of the country, it’s a time to consider the issues you care about and decide which candidates you support.
How do voters compare and judge candidates?
I want to share a helpful election resource provided by the National League of Women Voters: VOTE411.org. You will find all the candidates running on your local ballot, in addition to any referendums, by entering just your address. Candidates, in their own words, answer a set of questions about their position on issues important to voters. It’s easy to compare each candidate’s answers and views side by side.
Even if you’re under eighteen years old and not yet eligible to vote, election campaigns offer an excellent way to learn about the people and issues that affect your future. I found this valuable resource earlier this year and referred to it in previous elections when considering who to vote for. Every vote counts!
Check out VOTE411.org to learn more about your ballot.
