IDEAS FOR DOING YOUR OWN RESEARCH

Choose a Candidate to research.

Choose some key words dealing with issues that are important to you.
(Key Word Examples-abortion, religious freedom, education, LGBT, gay, transgender, family, common core, gun, Second Amendment, immigration, border, defense, budget, taxes, ...)

Google a combination of words that includes:
1) the candidates first and last name, and 2) either the office they are running for or election 2016, and 3) one key word at a time.

Visit the candidate's website for their endorsements and specific positions on issues of concern to you. Facebook posts AND FB and website pictures are sometimes insightful.

Attend local voter forums and/or email the candidate to ask specific questions. Contact information is often found on the candidate websites.

Below are links to online sources that you may find helpful in your research.


ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

Vote Smart – Search by candidate name to find bios, voting records (for incumbents), positions, funding, etc. for federal and state races (not much local information).

PARTY PLATFORM COMPARISON

Is there a difference between the political parties? Yes there is! In 2018 Family Research Council Action had a direct hand in shaping the most conservative Republican Party platform in modern history. See the difference for yourself and share with others!
