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, religious freedom, 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 2018, 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.

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!


ORANGE COUNTY

Faith & Freedom Coalition Voter Guide for November 6, 2018
Part 1  -  Part 2

Orange County Pro-Family Candidate List

IMPORTANT - Robyn Nordell's Notes on the Faith & Freedom & OC Pro-Family Voter Guides:

1) These 2 guides can be very helpful for knowing how participating candidates answered questions about several important issues. Robyn uses both as part of her candidate research.

2) However, some good candidates did not fill out a questionnaire (and therefore are not on the guides)

3) In some races, more than 1 candidate filled out the questionnaire with similar answers:

ANAHEIM: Robyn is supporting Prolife Cynthia Ward for Anaheim Mayor and Prolife Patricia Gaby for Anaheim City Council. Neither of these candidates is included in either guide, as they did not fill out questionnaires.

COSTA MESA: Robyn is supporting Allan Mansoor for Costa Mesa City Council

OC DISTRICT ATTORNEY: Robyn is supporting Tony Rackauckas, as preferable to the opponent.

IRVINE Mayor: Robyn is supporting Don Wagner.

ORANGE City Council, Robyn is recommending Chip Monaco and Kimberly Nichols (Nichols did not fill out questionnaire. Robyn does not know whether or not Nichols is prolife.)

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO City Council #3, Robyn is recommending Pam Patterson.
